Server Racks and Data Wave

The rise in global cyber crime exploits has increased the risk for all internet users

The Bank of England has categorised cyber crime as, “a real and present danger,” that often begins with a phishing email and ends with the loss of: data, assets, reputations, profits and jobs. However, the bank also acknowledges that the cyber crime risk can be understood, quantified and mitigated.

Spamhaus’ global team of security researchers constantly monitors spam traffic to identify domains and IP addresses that are linked to: spamming, phishing, botnets, DDoS, ransomware and other malicious activity. Our researchers know that new exploits can often be traced back to the same handful of botnet operators. Using this information, we can arm organizations with the ability to deflect connections from harmful domains and IP addresses.

Spamhaus constantly gathers temporal data on newly-registered domains and new email senders, looking for anomalous or adverse behaviour that indicates criminal activity. Malware samples are run in sandboxes to study how exploits work and Spamhaus researchers analyze the inter-relationship of data to discover where threats might be linked.
