Editor's Message

Welcome to DBD. 2023 has been the worst year on record for Data-Leaking Ransomware Attacks, and despite Law Enforcement gains, show no signs of slowing down. On a more positive note, our PRiSM platform continues to gain recognition and is now officially endorsed as a Ransomware Intelligence Resource by the SANS Institute. With that in mind, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your very much appreciated and continued support. Stay safe. :)
