We live in a world where conversations are held and relationships are built using social media. We share our thoughts, life experiences, dreams and other personal information with our “friends” using this platform. In the past several months, our media was dominated by highly publicized breaches. The Cybercrime game has just begun. The extent, complexity, pervasiveness and perverseness of this crime will continue to grow at an exponential rate.
How is this Cybercrime game being played to commit fraud? How are the rules changing? Who has the upper hand? Who should be afraid? Can the auditors help? Is there a solution? How are you playing? Who will win?
