And they are evolving.
They are more organized and sophisticated. They have more digital weapons, more money, more technology, and more opportunity and desire. This is the life of the cybersecurity professional.
In order to proactively prepare, we must first take time to understand our enemy. Who is looking to breach our defenses? What are their motives? What is their level of education? What is their technical prowess?
Building a cracker or hacker profile is not an easy task. While there is a fair amount of discord about terminology, when it comes to hackers and crackers, for the purpose of this blog, we will refer to hackers as either good guys, bad guys, or somewhere in between.

Just for the record, hackers that use their skills for self-gain and malicious or unlawful purposes should be referred to as crackers, while hackers may be good guys or something in the middle, depending on their moral compass.

Cybercriminal organizations are well financed, have business plans, employees, target goals, strategies, HR departments, and the latest technology. As they grow, they are adopting big business models offering franchises, reseller partnerships, customer service, collaboration tools, and training. Cybercriminals are also working together to form global criminal communities. There are very specific skillsets. But it's not just gangs of hackers anymore: the cybercriminal ecosystem has evolved to the extent that it supports roles you'd expect to find in any large business.
Some groups even deploy call center operations to ensure maximum impact for their scamming efforts. These trends suggest that hacking and cybercrime are no longer the domain of individuals seeking to make a nuisance of themselves. Cybercrime is now an industry involving major criminal groups, with ecosystems as well-structured as the corporations they're likely attempting to target.
In the end, vigilance is the key. As IT security professionals, we must remain on guard and be prepared at all times. We must understand the risk, the players, the strategies, tools, and code of conduct that malicious hackers seek to employ to do us harm. The old stereotype of a lone hacker sitting in the dark should not be your biggest concern. As a security expert, why would you want to learn RCE? The most common reason is to reverse malware such as viruses or Trojans. The antivirus industry depends on the ability to dissect binaries in order to diagnose, disinfect, and prevent them.
