CaaS
This all makes perfect sense. As enterprises are digitally transforming, so too are criminal enterprises.

After the spam-industry bust some years ago, all these hackers and cybercriminals with botnets thousands and tens of thousands strong needed SOMETHING to do with their resources. Thus, these "services."

Re: CaaS Best practices business models?
There's quite mix of players isn't there? It seems reasonable to say many are low cost innovators even. Actually solid business practices was the MAFIA's secrect. I remain curious how that applies today. A mixed bag I am sure. Here again a malicious creativty again involving ongoing research. This has a long history. Humans huh? Sucks. It's just new waves of technology layered on old but all the old tricks continue in parallel. This applies to our best and worst traits.
