ACFE Sydney March Event – Cybercrime as a Service

A structural evolution in the cybercrime landscape is occurring with the needs and wants of state and non-state actors being increasingly met by a cybercrime market.  Traditional risk profile assessments that may have focused on the intent/capability paradigm are now being challenged by new threats posed by intermediaries that can match the needs of an actor seeking to cause havoc or damage to a company with the capabilities of a ‘hacker-for-hire’ that might have developed a new bug, identified a vulnerability or opportunity to exploit.  As such, these new ‘Exploitation Brokers’ don’t merely pose new threats to the safety and integrity of businesses and government systems, they fundamentally change the paradigm in which we approach our threat profiles and risk assessments in the cybercrime arena.

Join us at our forthcoming ACFE seminar where Dr John Selby,  critically explains, explores and develops these issues and the importance to fraud investigators tasked with detecting, deterring and responding to cybercrime fraud and security concerns.
