Supervisory Special Agent Mott will discuss THE RISE OF EASTERN EUROPEAN ORGANIZED CYBER CRIME.
Cyber crime originating from Eastern Europe is a growing problem that targets the financial infrastructure of not only the United States but other industrialized western countries. While focused primarily in Russia, this crime problem has branched out to Romania and other Eastern European countries with a computer savvy population and few jobs with which they can utilize these skills. This disenfranchisement is being exploited by organized crime entities in these countries that are creating a new form of "Cyber Crime Families." This presentation will focus on the rise of cyber crime in this area, the type of crime coming from specific countries and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's approach to addressing this problem.
