Topic: Technology

We’re not in Kansas anymore. Cybercrime is a multi-million dollar industry targeting consumer and business finances, personal information, and intellectual property. Take a detour from the yellow brick road to the dark side of the Internet where we expose the tools and tactics used by cybercriminals to steal personal information and corporate financial and information assets.

Along the way, we’ll present real-world examples of actual exploits and provide recommendations, best practices, and resources that would make even the Great and Powerful Oz envious.

Topics include:

  • Ransomware

  • Account Takeover

  • Business Email Compromise

  • Online/Mobile Banking Controls

  • Incident Response

Speaker(s): Chris Hart: Customer Information Security Officer First Financial Bank
