Criminals drain $100,000 from a corporation after a billing clerk is duped by a fake invoice.  A financial institution announces a data breach after hackers steal an employee's password and break into his webmail account.  These are just a couple examples of damaging fraud and data breach cases that stem from hacked business emails.  Business email compromise is a critical threat in 2019, as organized crime groups use increasingly sophisticated tactics to mine data from your email and leverage it for financial gain.  Fortunately, there are now strong tools available to protect your organization's email accounts.  In this talk, we'll review how Business Email Compromise works, the ways that scammers leverage your inbox, and practical methods for protecting yourself.

Cybercriminals are taking hacking to the next level by leveraging ever-more sophisticated toolsets and increasingly mature techniques.  Cryptocurrency mining is the latest trend for criminals, who break into servers, install miners, and use stolen PII from your databases to set up wallets for transferring funds.  We'll view a hacker's wallet setup in action, including screenshots of the criminal's web surfing history and falsified documents uncovered through forensic analysis.  In 2019, we expect to see more dangerous types of cyber extortion, where criminals demand ransom payments not just from the hacked organization, but also clients, patients, vendors, and employees.
