Remember Brett Johnson? He’s the former FBI Most Wanted Hacker who the Secret Service called “the original Internet godfather.” Now, he’s a sought-after security consultant who delivered a keynote address at the last CNP conference. On our previous episode of Trust & Safety in Numbers, we sat down with Brett Johnson to talk about his adventures.
In this episode, Brett shares some invaluable insights into how fraudsters operate. As fraud fighters, we all know what comes to mind when someone says “card-not-present fraud” or “account takeover,” but what does a fraudster see that we’re not seeing? When do our fraud fighting methods actually stop fraudsters in their tracks…and when do we accidentally encourage them to innovate? Brett takes us beyond the buzzwords, shedding light on the types of fraud we’re overlooking, ignoring, or even promoting.
