How The Carding Landscape Has Evolved: From Key Collections to Pandemic Implications
We’re in an interesting and unprecedented time for not only businesses focusing on day-to-day operations, but facing new challenges from opportunistic threat actors. Cybercriminals are constantly evolving their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to carry out fraud and account takeover schemes–not only in pandemic situations, but overall as defenders level-up their practices for combating cybercrime. Collections that are critical to be mindful of like card shops and marketplaces, as well as examine trends that we are observing as digital activity increases due to stay at home orders across the globe. As we have previously observed, a number of large credit card breaches over the last year were from physical point-of-sale transactions. Our analysts assess that this may have an impact on either the supply or demand of stolen credit card data. In addition to what I have mentioned above, you’ll take away the following topics from this on-demand webinar discussion with my colleague Mike Smola:
- What do cybercriminals need to conduct credit card fraud and how do they gather this information?
- What can your intelligence teams look out for when it comes to card fraud?
- Has coronavirus impacted the way malicious threat actors are selling information? Hypothesis: there might be more CNP present data or prices of CNP data has increased due to shops and stores being closed, more online transactions
- Are we seeing anything with PPE as a means of phishing and gaining PII
- How has the coronavirus pandemic affected the availability or pricing of card data?
