While sophisticated cyberattacks and high-profile mega-breaches get most of the attention, European fraud experts say less sophisticated attacks are far more common and pose a greater fraud risk. At ISMG's Fraud Summit in London, they called for global collaboration to fight fraud.
British police have arrested a 15-year-old boy in connection with the suspected hack of TalkTalk. Security experts say that if a teenager was responsible, it's going to be difficult for the communications firm to prove that it takes customers' data security seriously.
The recent data breach at U.K.-based telecom company TalkTalk illustrates that breach risk mitigation is a critical issue worldwide. PCI's Jeremy King, who will be a featured speaker at ISMG's Fraud Summit London on Oct. 27, explains why European data security is getting more scrutiny.
Everyone's talking about business email compromise, but what they aren't talking enough about is what's at the root of these attacks - spear phishing. Joseph Opacki of PhishLabs discusses how security leaders must respond to the threat.

The size of the information security analyst workforce in the United States rose by nearly 20 percent in the past year, according to an Information Security Media Group analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics data.
Attributing cybercrime to specific criminals is becoming increasingly critical, says Eward Driehuis of threat intelligence firm Fox-IT. Using the elusive Dridex campaign as an example, Driehuis explains in this video interview how many malware attacks are interconnected.
ATM fraud losses are increasing globally, and we can expect to see this trend continue as the U.S. ramps up its migration to EMV at the point of sale. Unattended terminals are easy to compromise, and they will always be among fraudsters' favorite targets.
Unprecedented levels of collaboration among targeted financial services firms enabled the international law enforcement operation that disrupted the Dridex botnet, security firm Fox-IT says. Now, can that model be repeated going forward?
FBI Director James Comey's declaration that the Obama administration will not pursue legislation to require vendors to create a backdoor that would permit law enforcement to circumvent encryption on mobile devices isn't the end of the matter.
Target - the nation's second-largest discount retailer and best-known data breach poster child - has begun issuing its house-brand REDcards with chip and PIN. The move comes as the majority of card issuers have opted for chip and signature, which some security experts warn is a weaker choice.
An international law enforcement operation - spearheaded by the U.S. FBI and U.K. National Crime Agency - has disrupted the notorious Dridex banking malware and phishing campaign, which has been tied to at least $40 million in losses worldwide.
