New ransomware gangs 2024
By |Published On: June 24th, 2024|8 min read|Categories: Ransomware|

2023 was a year that saw ransomware continuously break records, and while the usual  suspects LockBit and BlackCat represented 38% of all reported attacks, we also saw around 29 new ransomware gangs begin operations last year.

Notable newcomers in 2023 included Akira, who were responsible for over 50 attacks and Rhysida who made headlines with attacks on organizations including the British Library and Prospect Medical.

We all know of the notorious groups that have been around for a number of years who, of course, are still making headlines with their notable attacks, but it is also important to watch those new groups who are emerging and starting to make waves in the ransomware landscape.

This year, we’ve decided to track new ransomware gangs and their victims and will keep you updated as and when we discover them.
