Upcoming Event: Cybercrime in the World Today

By: Jessica Piperis

On Thursday, February 28, 2013, Pace University will be hosting a free event, “Cybercrime in the World Today.”  The event is being co-sponsored by the  Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.

Several common forms of cybercrime will be discussed.  One example is “skimmer fraud,” where a credit card is skimmed and the data on the card is electronically transmitted or stored. Credit card information such as account numbers can then be used to create counterfeit credit cards. Research results of a global survey of over 2000 financial professionals will also be discussed.
