    Up to now, there have been relatively few laws or regulations from government agencies that mandate just how companies should protect their data.

    What do LeaseWeb, Galkahost, and Spamz have in common? All of them, at one point or another, have functioned as cybercriminal hideouts in the form of bulletproof hosting services (BPHS). Simply put, BPHS is any “hosting facility that can store any type of malicious content like phishing sites, pornography, and command-and-control (C&C) infrastructure.” If I were to compare them with real-life crime rings, BPHS would be those hideouts criminals use to perform their illegal activities in private.
