If it hasn’t already, SIM card swapping is comin to a mobile phone near you. A SIM swap is a low-cost, nontechnical way for attackers to gain control of a victim’s wireless phone account. The majority wireless phone accounts are vulnerable to SIM swaps. For those that hold cryptocurrency, attackers north and south of the border are especially interested to find you.
Highlighting recent cross-border cases, this exclusive presentation for the Canada-West Virtual Summit audience will elaborate on recent cases. It will uniquely be presented by agents from the United States Secret Service, the Toronto Police Service Intelligence Services Coordinated Cyber Centre (C3), and the REACT – the Regional Enforcement Allied Computer Team.
Moreover, the agency representatives will talk about how they partner to thwart cybercrime, and stay ahead of the threat actors that prey on organizations in the area, especially those that have a good deal of cross-border trading activity. Each of them will further explain their agency’s mission, take questions from Community Members, and detail the steps to take before you or your organization are the target of an attack.
