Security black market as mature as any other free market

Quote:
The hacker market, far from being a series of ad hoc, disparate networks powered by ego and fame, is a market with many similarities to other markets in free economies, a survey from Juniper Networks said.

The report, conducted by RAND Corporation through a series of two dozen interviews between October and December 2013, said that there were five indicators of the maturity of the market — sophistication, specialisation, reliability, accessibility, and resilience to external events — and that the hacking market has potential to be more profitable than the illicit drug trade due to the links to users being more direct, few requirements to getting started in the economy, and the worldwide distribution available.

"I don't think people expect to see it so mature," Greg Bunt, Juniper director of APAC security sales, told ZDNet.
