What "Narcos" Can Teach Us about Reducing Cyber Crime on the DarkWeb

What “Narcos” Can Teach Us about Reducing Cyber Crime on the DarkWeb

The popular Netflix series Narcos tells the story of former drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, who in his prime made nearly as much money trafficking cocaine in a year than the whole gross domestic product of Colombia. And while there were many factors that led to the rise of Escobar, the most significant was growing worldwide demand. Similarly, there is a growing demand for privileged user logins on the dark web, and the results could have devastating consequences for businesses worldwide.

The dark web is not just a bazaar for illegal drugs and stolen credit card numbers. Bubbling beneath the surface of this already dicey marketplace is a booming economy thriving on stolen identities.

From consumer credit card logins that sell for $15 to iOS administrator credentials that top out at $1.5 million, the formula is simple: The more access someone has

6 lessons ‘Ghost in the Shell’ can teach you about cybersecurity

The original Ghost in the Shell (GitS) movie was practically compulsory material in the hacker subculture of the late 90s, early 2000s.

The main protagonist was a hacker called the Puppet Master, and the idea of hacking technically augmented humans was ahead its time (the Internet of Things wasn’t even a “thing” then).
