Knowing your enemy: An investigation into cybercrime against financial services institutions
Threat actors continue to target the financial sector. In fact, there are now over 98 known groups targeting UK financial services organisations. One such group, Carbanak, or Fin7, has gained notoriety for targeting banks and exploiting sensitive data for financial gain. While some key members of the group were jailed in 2018, putting a stop to some of the attacks, the gambit is now starting to make a comeback.
Understanding the threats to the sector is the first step in defending against them. We’ve called upon Protective Security expert, Jim Seaman, to help us learn more about threat actors, the tactics they use and how we can protect businesses against them.
What you’ll learn from our expert-led webinar:
- Overview of Carbanak
- Areas of operation
- Notable attacks
- Kill chain
- Tactics used
- Countermeasures you can use against threat actors
