  • ISMG’s Mathew Schwartz discuss attempts made by law enforcement in Europe to encourage young cybercriminals to use their skills for more ethical purposes;
  • Karen Boyer, vice president of financial crimes and fraud intelligence at People's United Bank N.A, describe how the pandemic impacted fraud detection and response for the better;
