Unique data on Russian-speaking hackers was provided to ElectricIQ by the Moscow-based Group-IB, which specializes in cyber intelligence, monitoring and prevention of cyber threats.
“It’s impossible to get valuable information about an underground community without a deep understanding of the region and of the cybercriminals’ motives, psychology, and language,” Dmitry Volkov, Co-Founder of Group-IB said in a statement.
Intelligence on Russian hackers is sourced from underground communities. Data includes patterns of behavior, motives, methods and techniques. Group-IB said this unique information allows cybersecurity professionals to build more effective defense strategies.
“It takes years to forge an effective intelligence network into a regular channel of reliable information. We’ve been following Russian-language underground hacking communities since 2003, making Group-IB the absolute leader in the field,” Volkov said.
