Russia’s Little-Known Hacker Hunters

A Moscow startup called Group-IB has taken on the dangerous task of hunting down famed Russian hackers.

Russian hackers have built up a fearsome reputation as super-skilled and dangerous fraudsters. This would make being a Russian hacker hunter one of the least desirable jobs on the planet.

That is, unless you’re Ilya Sachkov, the co-founder and chief executive officer of Group-IB. Sachkov’s company specializes in studying the ways of the Russian hacker, unmasking criminals, and turning them over to authorities, and has enjoyed an unmatched track record of success.
