Episode 36: FIN7 Arrests and Phishing Threats

August 10, 2018 Digital Shadows

Digital Shadows’ Rose Bernard and Simon Hall join Rafael Amado to cover the arrest of three alleged members of the FIN7 organized criminal group. The team go over the United States Department of Justice’s indictment and provide some key observations on FIN7’s operations, including how sophisticated phishing and social engineering are the cornerstones of the group’s success. In Part II, the team look at phishing more generally, including the threats from business email compromise and malspam.
