Title - The Rise of Cyber-Crime: A Legal Perspective
Abstract - Whether it is a spear phishing attack, social engineering, or malware specifically tailored to obtain online banking credentials, hundreds of thousands of dollars are at risk to fund transfer fraud and other cyber-crime. If your business is not prepared for and properly insured against these items, you could be left holding the bag. Overseas organized crime is using increasingly sophisticated methods to gain temporary control of commercial accounts and to initiate fraudulent wire transfers or extract information from the company to be used as collateral in extortion.
