Cyber Fraud: State of Play

Ron Plesco

Principal, Cyber Response Services

KPMG

 

Cyber frauds such as email take overs, identity theft, breaches, ransomware and system disruptions continue to surge.  This is the world we live in—whether we accept it or not.  And for business and government leaders or just us consumers, Ron reminds us that it’s not a matter of if, or when your organization needs to respond to a breach or fraud, it is a matter of establishing Cyber Resiliency and assuming you are being hacked now.  In this talk, this cyberspace expert helps us understand the cyber threats to business and individuals.  He’ll describe the threat landscape and answer how we got here and in so doing will navigate such questions as:

  • How did Chinese military hackers steal a decade’s worth of R&D from global corporations?
  • How did hackers with Wall Street-fluency breach media and healthcare companies so they could play the market?
  • How and why do they steal your Identities and sell them on the Darknet?? Ron will then answer the most pressing question of all?
  • How do I protect myself?
  • He will a explain the practical steps you can take to prevent these attacks

 

Beyond just the basics Ron will conclude with a discussion around the new digital “zeitgeist”: how information is being weaponized, and public/consumer opinion is being swayed with surgical precession on your tablet, cell phone TV or laptop.

Ron is an internationally known information security and privacy attorney with over 17 years’ experience in cyber investigations, information assurance, privacy, identity management, computer crime and emerging cyber threats and technology solutions. Ron is a Principal in KPMG’s Cyber Response Services practice. Ron joined KPMG in 2012 after a distinguished career in the private and public sectors and is a frequent speaker nationally.

Security Threats in the Age of Covid-19

John Sancenito, CPP

President, Information Network Associates

 

Cybercrime was one of the largest threats facing U.S. businesses prior to the start of the pandemic. The outbreak of Covid-19 created a perfect opportunity for criminals to strike. Phishing emails increased by 700% in the two months after businesses closed down.

This presentation will take a 360 Degree Look at security threats in the Age of Covid-19.  A great deal of the workforce was sent home to work remotely with little or no training on how to do so safely.  Many users used unsecure networks and were easy targets for criminals using social engineering experts.   

Struggling businesses have not invested in IT or physical security upgrades, creating prospects for opportunistic criminals to exploit.  As businesses emerge and re-unite their workforce, there are new cyber security threats that will need to be addressed. Many businesses have workers have unpatched software, malware infected devices and employees with bad cyber security habits. This presentation will look back at threats at the beginning of the outbreak, discuss current threats facing business, and offer practical advice on how to address future physical and cyber security threats.

 

John J. Sancenito is the President and co-owner of Information Network Associates, Inc. (INA); an international investigative and corporate consulting firm headquartered in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  INA specializes in providing risk management consulting and intelligence services to high-risk industries around the world.
