Digital Shadows (now ReliaQuest) has just launched a new research-led weekly newsletter, “In the Shadows”, and podcast, “Shadow Talk”. Both highlight key findings of primary-source research our Intelligence Team is conducting, along with the latest threat actors, campaigns, security events and industry news. From technical exploit analysis to strategic insights, the content of the newsletter and podcast allows a timely and concise “analyst’s eye view” of key information security issues.

In upcoming weeks, expect to be updated on our ongoing research into the cybercriminal underground, as well as the effect that increasing exposure and scrutiny from law enforcement has had on this community over the past few years. The latest findings can be found each week in the newsletter, here:

The cybercriminal community has been significantly disrupted by the high-profile take-down of dark web criminal marketplaces, such as the Silk Road, HANSA and AlphaBay. Rather than overtly deterring cybercriminal activity, the prominent media coverage has, in fact, increased the number of users logging onto cybercriminal forums. What has changed significantly from the “back in the day” forums to the new generation is the trust models users are creating to ensure security.

The Intelligence Team looks forward to sharing this research via “In the Shadows.” Stay up to date with the latest security news and trends by signing up to receive “In the Shadows”, in your inbox, every Monday:

You can also listen to the latest research subjects discussed on “Shadow Talk”, which will feature the Digital Shadows (now ReliaQuest) Research and Intelligence Teams covering a hot topic in security each week.
