Jmurray8at February 08,2015 Cybercrimes you never hear about
• Great short clip – very informative
• 1.3M – average cybercrime against a bank
• Gonzales stole 11.2M payment cards then 90 M – he got greedy
• In July 2007 Gonzales was arrested in a back – he was jailed for 20 years
• Reality of reputational risk is what stops you from hearing about it.
mjacobat February 11,2015 As the previous posts have mentioned, this video touches on the ever present danger of credit card and PII theft. Whether it be through hacking into an unencrypted corporate database storing CC information or through vulnerabilities in POS systems like the Target and Home Depot breach, you now see breaches like the one in the video making headlines and showing up in the daily news. Hopefully through this media exposure, companies will finally begin to protect and secure their assets from cyber criminals.
skatakamat February 19,2015 100% Security is a myth. If it is a corporation or a bank or anything that involves money, these people are at their back with their anonymity prevailing in the internet.
Steps to track back and recollecting the loss and patching our own security periodically is the only chance we have to minimize the losses.
nbodykat March 03,2015 The disturbing aspect of this video is that Gonzales was able to hack into a retailer through their wireless network and gain access to the corporate network. Who left that big security hole exposed? You would think that retailers would try to be a bit more security conscious about protecting their customers' personal data. A retailer's bottom line is tied to the customer if you don't protect their information they will not do business with you again. Look at Target, they suffered a big security breach because they neglected to turn on a new and very expensive anti-malware program they had purchased because the security team didn't trust it. Why spend over a million dollars on a anti-malware program if you're not going to trust it? Are you kidding me? Instead you suffer a loss of consumer trust and who know how much retail sales from those customers who chose not to go back to your store. http://bgr.com/2014/03/13/target-data-hack-how-it-happened/.
kcn278at March 05,2015 This heist was in 2005 and sounds like what it is today where you would see tons of articles on security news about data theft and PII theft. This must have been advanced then, but now it is so common to see. Either the targets he chose did not have wireless password or it was using WEP at the time.
