This presentation will cover the increasing globalization of cybercrime that has been enabled by the commoditization of tools (such as malware and infrastructure/hacking as a service) developed and used anywhere in the world, and how cybersecurity researchers and law enforcement have been collaborating to tackle this challenge. The speaker will describe a recent 5-year collaborative effort among hundreds of researchers and law enforcement officials in the United States, Australia, The Netherlands, and Canada that resulted in arrests, convictions, and monetary fines of both the developers and users of tools related to a major globally distributed business e-mail compromise (BEC) campaign. The session will conclude with lessons learned and offer ideas regarding steps researchers, businesses, and law enforcement can take to continue to improve this type of collaboration to address global cybercrime.
