A Close Analysis 2019 Cyber Threat Groups in E.Africa

There is a high likelihood that’s the reason, because most of these gang
leaders usually recruit straight out of college and brainwash the young
kids. And once the young boy is hooked, with the first fee of maybe
100,000/= he wants to learn more on how to hack and they start learning new
things and eventually have a capability to penetrate banks that don’t do
RedTeams or any serious blackbox penetration testing. You have to know,
these hacks are usually Targets of Opportunity.

So as they grow in the Cyber Gangs they learn the ways to hide money after
a heist and realize they can earn more by their own and end up branching
out and building a new gang group.

And that’s why now, we have around 10 gang groups with the Seven doing
major heists around East and Central Africa.
