Any crisis will have bad actors looking to profit off of it. We’re already getting reports of cybercriminals using Covid-19 to scam the vulnerable, extort healthcare providers, and spread misinformation. In this webinar, we’ll tell you about the role cryptocurrency plays in Covid-19-related crimes such as:
- Scams taking advantage of the crisis
- Ransomware attacks against healthcare providers
- How darknet markets react to a pandemic
Join our Head of Research Kim Grauer for a deep dive into these topics, plus information on how the cryptocurrency industry and law enforcement can work together to fight back.
