e-Crime, the Age of Cybergeddon presented at AUScert 2010

by Jason Pearce,

Summary : Cybergeddon?...
This is a term coined by the FBI. The current crimeware landcape has been dubbed as 'Cybergeddon' due to a combination of increasing sophistication of both the cybercriminals and their tools; the low detection and prosecution rate; and the financial stakes triggering a sharp increase in cybercrime during 2009 and moving into 2010. This session will explore the reasons why we are in Cybergeddon, the business impact and the evolution of the criminal element; how the industry operated, the most common techniques used and the complexity and diversity of the current threat landscape.
