This will be an advanced level discussion covering attacks sourced from the Darknet that target the global financial services industry. We will detail what the Darknet is, how it operates, why it’s so elusive and why it’s a breeding ground for malicious activity. More specifically, we will focus on new and emerging threats stemming from the Darknet that are designed to exploit the systems supporting the financial services industry.

Questions that will be addressed are as follows: What is the Darknet? Where does it exist? Who has access? How is it used? What types of new and emerging attacks have been discovered? How are these attacks specific to the financial services industry?

Attendees will gain a thorough understanding of the Darknet. They will understand how criminals leverage the Darknet and why attacks sourced there are often highly successful. Attendees will also get an advanced understanding of a number of purpose-built attacks designed specifically to compromise systems supporting the financial services industry.
