Ecommerce fraud seems pretty, self-contained, right? Your trust & safety team catches a fraudster, you put safeguards in place to prevent similar fraud from happening in the future, and that’s the end of the story. Or is it?
You may not realize it, but online fraud and other cyber threats can have serious ramifications for national security. To learn more, we sit down with Melissa Griffith, PhD candidate in political science at UC Berkeley and a researcher at the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity. Unlike most of our guests, who zoom in on how fraud works in their vertical, Melissa zooms out: she studies how large corporations, governments, and governmental agencies deal with fraud on a global scale.
What happens when large businesses and government agencies encounter new cyber threats? What happens when they fail? And how do fights over cybersecurity play out on the international stage?
