Charity Wright on the latest scams coming from hackers in Latin America
Charity Wright, cyber threat intelligence adviser for IntSights, talks with CyberScoop editor-in-chief Greg Otto about the ways hackers are prospering in Latin America. Wright tells Otto about their use of laundering money through cryptocurrency and the various credit card fraud networks that are prevalent throughout the region.
“This marriage between the organized crime groups and the hacker community is really what we’re trying to bring to the forefront,” Wright says of IntSight’s report on Latin America. “Law enforcement agencies are so busy with national defense and trying to fight organized crime they’re not even really paying attention to this low-level type fraud.”
