Criminal activities in cyberspace increasingly depend upon sophisticated and specialized markets that freely deal in the tools and the spoils of cybercrime. RAND researcher and DEF CON “Black Badge” winner Lillian Ablon outlines (1) the characteristics of these burgeoning black markets, (2) why we can expect more cybercriminal activity, and (3) why the ability to attack will likely outpace the ability to defend.
