Cybercrime has a new and very lucrative: cyberheists. Their preferred target is Small to Mid-sized organization with hundreds of potential target victims for maliciously encrypting files and holding them for ransom, exposing customer PII or e-PHI databases, stealing corporate intellectual property or even worse, obtaining logon credentials to clear out personal or corporate bank accounts.

Eastern European cyber-criminals  have concocted sophisticated and highly specialized malware to carry out their crimes while avoiding detection by many of the leading AV and anti-malware solutions available. These small to medium (SMB) organizations are the favorite target for the well organized cyber criminals as the staff in these companies frequently  lack the technical sophistication and security awareness training of their counterparts in larger Fortune 500 companies and above.
