Tripwire today announced that Ken Westin, security researcher, will present at ToorCamp 2014. The technology event will take place July 9-13, 2014, at the Hobuck Beach Resort in Neah Bay, Washington.

Through personal research and collaboration with law enforcement agencies, Westin has researched how organized crime rings, including those with connections to Russian and Eastern European groups, generate revenue through credit card theft. These groups profit through shoplifting, identity theft, credit card skimming and other forms of fraud.

In his presentation, Westin will discuss several cybercriminal cases he helped crack and attendees will learn:

  • The structure and key elements of the credit card black market
  • The connection between credit cards and the exploit market
  • How stolen credit cards fuel other forms of retail fraud
  • How retail businesses can make themselves unattractive to cybercriminals

What: How the Stolen Credit Card Black Market Works
Who: Ken Westin, security researcher, Tripwire, Inc.
