How to increase cybercrime: stop cooperating with each other

Dennis Batchelder & Hong Jia, AppEsteem

The Dynamic Security Ecosystem only works when the ecosystem works together, and we have data to prove it. We will show how cybercrime increases when AVs do not work together, and how cybercrime collapses when the security ecosystem is coordinated. Our data is based on tracking what happened to hundreds of unwanted software apps in the wild. We will present the story of successful and failed campaigns, and also show our calculation of the “tipping point” of what it seems take to drive a cybercriminal to call it quits.
