Account Take Over - Britney Hommertzheim – AMC Theatres:

Retail is growing from brick and mortar stores to online power houses.  Reflecting this development, we see fraud drawn to this online environment.  An environment where your face isn’t caught on a camera, and you reduce the physical risks of entering a physical location.  We’ll take a look at Account Take Over and show how we see fraudsters are finding, collecting, and selling loyalty accounts and what you can do about it. 

Cybersecurity Preparedness - Mark Clancy - Sprint:

We don’t have a fraud problem. Instead we have hundreds of intertwined simultaneously occurring cybersecurity and fraud problems.  This talk will propose a way of thinking about cybersecurity and fraud issues together from the perspective of the adversary.

Fraud and Cybersecurity - Rex Johnson & Julia Mast - BKD:

This presentation will discuss some of the tactics malicious actors use to exploit opportunities for cybercrime. We will discuss some of the statistics, case studies, and some opportunities on what organizations and individuals can do to attempt to address these threats.

Crimes committed by Nerds - Brian J Koechner - FBI
