TCAE is excited to invite Paul C Dwyer to share his insights and the latest trends of cybercrime and associated money laundering typologies.

Cybercrime is a trillion-dollar underground economy and has surpassed drug trafficking as the number one organised crime. Join Paul C Dwyer President of the ICTTF International Cyber Threat Task Force as we explore the underground ecosystem of cybercrime and the cyber threat landscape including identifying the main cyber threat actor groups and their motivations. We then break down the anatomy of cybercrime by uncovering the various stages of the cyber kill chain and gain an understanding of the TTP’s (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures) leveraged by the cyber threat actors. We take a walk through a real life case study of a cyber bank heist and switch gears to focus on the lessons that can be learnt. We explain how to empower business leaders to take a top-down approach in understanding and managing cyber risk holistically across an organisation.

We conclude with key strategic messaging around how to deal with cyber risk in a collaborative way across the entire enterprise and support digital transformation, innovation, compliance and delivering on your organization’s business goals and strategy.
