Digital money carries great user convenience, but for financial institutions presents a perpetual security issue. With bank details being sold in huge quantities on the Dark Web and innumerable social engineering scams doing the rounds, protecting banks and consumers against fraud is a serious challenge.
At the same time, cryptocurrencies are being adopted to cloak all manner of illicit financial streams while providing new opportunities to launder ill-gotten assets. And all the while, another problem looms. In an epidemic of underhand dealing, financial institutions have a tough job ensuring that all their business interactions are clean.
Join us on Thursday, March 9, at 1pm UTC for the webinar Leveraging OSINT to Fight Financial Crime. Social Links open-source intelligence specialist, Ivan Kravstov, will discuss a range of techniques that can be employed with SL Professional to effectively counter fraud and money laundering, as well as significantly enhance due diligence.
