In today’s digital landscape, cyber risk is no longer an isolated concern but a critical factor shaping business operations and partnerships, with 60 percent expected to use it to evaluate partnerships by 2025. With 88 percent of boards recognizing cybersecurity as a business challenge, the need for accessible threat intelligence has never been greater. However, democratizing this information has been a longstanding challenge until now. Cyberint’s Ransomania, leverages an enormous body of data collected by the Cyberint Research Team to provide a user-friendly interface for tracking ransomware activity by location and industry. The offering provides real-time insights and facilitates collaboration, equipping organizations with powerful tools to understand their particular threat landscape and strengthen their defenses against the most relevant cyber threats.

In conjunction with the release of Ransomania, Cyberint has published a comprehensive Ransomware Recap Report for 2023 (2023 Ransomware Recap by Cyberint) and hosted an expert webinar analyzing the ransomware threat landscape (https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/20101/603855). The report and webinar highlight key trends and insights gleaned from extensive research into the evolving ransomware landscape that underline the importance of information-sharing in the industry. Key insights from the reports include:

  • 2023 saw a total of 4,368 victims of ransomware, a surge of 55.5% from 2022.
  • Established groups like LockBit3.0 (with 1,047 victims), ALPHV (with 445 victims), and Clop (with 384 victims), along with emerging groups like 8Base (conducting attacks on 281 organizations), Play (executing 304 attacks), BianLian (with 281 victims), and Akira (with 174 victims), contributed to the surge in ransomware attacks.
  • The MOVEit campaign emerged as the most impactful, emphasizing the potentially devastating effect of supply chain attacks and the importance of dedicated supply chain security procedures.
  • After 2023’s successful MOVEit campaign, threat actors related to the ransomware and cybercrime industries are predicted to massively increase their targeting of supply chains.Law authorities globally have been adopting more aggressive approaches in combating cybercrime, particularly in the ransomware industry. Consequently, Cyberint anticipates instances of law authorities compromising threat actors’ infrastructures to force shutdowns.
  • As the ransomware industry becomes very lucrative for threat actors, we are likely going to see some new bold faces, along with comebacks of some groups that disappeared in 2023, such as HIVE.
