In one long weekend in May 2023, a cybercriminal gang called Clop conducted one of the largest data breaches on record. The supply-chain attack affected thousands of organizations and millions of people. The group dumped terabytes of health care data, personal and corporate records on the internet in an effort to extort the victims. CLOP’s attack epitomizes the challenges in fighting professional cybercriminal gangs generating billions of dollars a year in profit. But will Clop, whose members are likely in Russia or Eastern Europe, be held to account?
