How to Commit Card Fraud

  • G. Mark Hardy
  • Tuesday, October 25th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Well, we're not going to show you how to commit fraud, but will show you how the bad guys do it and how you can protect yourself and your business.

We'll take a look into the "dark web" and see how these big card heists are pulled off, why chip-and-pin won't solve the fraud problem, and why payment technologies like Apple Pay pose new risks. You'll learn the ecosystem of fraud, and how it's become a big business that costs banks and merchants over $16 billion annually. See if your bank even bothers to use the security protections it could -- we'll have a mag stripe card reader so you can really see what's in your wallet.

Certified SANS Instructor G. Mark Hardy is the CEO and founder of CardKill Inc., a start-up that helps banks preemptively kill stolen cards BEFORE they are used in fraud.
