Boots on the Ground with Mark Arena

About This Episode

Joining us from the fantastic vista of Monaco is Mark Arena. He’s the CEO at Intel 471 – and he has a great story to tell about the origins of the company name, Boots On the Ground! He also breaks down the ransomware threat over the last couple of decades and how they have evolved with the availability of new, faster, better technology as well as a business acumen in creating affiliate programs and Ransomware-as-a-Service.

He shares insights on cryptomixing as yet another path ransomware gangs can utilize to anonymize their ransom bounties received. (HINT: this is more like money laundering of cryptocurrency) So many great insights in this episode – including the importance of boots on the ground - you don’t want to miss it!
