Organisations also now face exploding volumes of newer and more sophisticated threats because malware and ways to exploit it are now readily available in online marketplaces. There is a very real hacker-enablement supply chain in both the dark web and traditional outlets that readily shares basic hacking tools and code, allowing many more cyberthieves to execute successful attacks. In addition, hackers are now less often individual “geeks” and more likely to be well-funded technology experts supported by organized crime or even governments. This trend, combined with ever-increasing network speeds, means that stopping cyber attacks is now a big data problem that stands to overwhelm older network protection technologies.
