Amsterdam-based ElectricIQ company has integrated data on Russian-speaking hackers into its platform, providing intelligence for IT security professionals. The upgrade could help build effective defensive strategies against cyber criminals.

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.
