Russian cybercrime investigation and computer forensics company and LETA Group subsidiary Group-IB released a 28-page report prepared by analysts from its computer forensics lab and its CERT-GIB unit on the Russian cybercrime market in 2011.


Russian cybercrime doubles

The global cybercrime market was more than $12.5 billion in 2011. (emph mine) The global Russian speaking component of that market was more than $4 billion; and the Russian national cybercrime market was $2.3 billion, essentially doubling last year's number of $1.2 billion.
