A Clear and Present Danger: Transnational Organized Crime/Gangs [ASIS Webinar]

When:  Jul 27, 2021 from 15:00 to 16:00 (ET)

The presentation will provide several first-person historical examples of the criminal gangster mind set and mentality present in today’s transnational organized crime/gangs combined with a holistic approach towards prevention and intervention in the cybersecurity space. Credence will be given to the roll and importance of the gang members’ spirituality and family, whether it is supportive of the gang culture or attempts to set an anti-gang environment. This will be augmented by three (or more) examples of how the increasing threats are coming from transnational organized crime groups (e.g., Russian mafia, Chinese Triads, MS 13, and cartels). These influential organizations have tremendous power and money, which means they have the ability to pay hackers to defeat cybersecurity measures.
