The panelists - Anna Delaney, director, productions; Mathew Schwartz, executive editor, DataBreachToday and Europe; Suparna Goswami, associate editor, ISMG Asia; and Tony Morbin, executive news editor, EU - discuss:

  • How, at a time when the wider Russian-language darknet market scene remains fragmented, online drug markets are switching to custom Android apps for greater privacy;
  • Highlights from an interview with Frank McKenna of Point Predictive, who explains how check fraud, first-party fraud and AI-related fraud will increase in 2023, thanks in large part to growing insider threats and the global economic slowdown;
  • How Russia's war in Ukraine is changing the balance of power in cyberspace and who is likely to be the main beneficiary.
