Cryptocurrencies: A Catalyst Driving Cyber Crime

Presented by

Christian Karam, Security Researcher and Director of Cyber Threat Intelligence, UBS AG

About this talk

Cyber crime has risen exponentially across the world in the past four years, causing insurmountable damage in its wake. One of the many reasons cyber crime models have been successful is the adoption of payment models that facilitate anonymization of criminal activities. Cryptocurrencies have given aspiring criminals enough confidence to expand their activities and large campaigns while expecting higher profits. In this webinar, Christian Karam, security researcher and director of cyber threat intelligence at UBS AG, will share: • Business models, tactical changes, and techniques that cyber criminals have employed recently to refine their activities. • Solutions that are effective in tracking, tracing, and narrowing down measures and controls for attribution. • How threat intelligence of the dark web and criminal forums provides threat insights.
