Examining Cybercrime 2: Financial Edition

Toronto (Ontario)
Tuesday, May 31, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 17:00 PM


What are the most prevalent forms of financial cybercrime today? Who are the main targets and what is the cost of financial cybercrime? What are best practices for industry and government? How does financial cybercrime in Canada relate to the international community?

These questions, and many more, will be addressed in this interactive, one-day tutorial. This tutorial precedes the Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (eCrime 2016), bridging the gaps between cybersecurity operations and research. The tutorial will be divided into multiple segments, each led by an industry, government, or academic expert in the field to provide insight and share first-hand experiences.

Presenters will include:

  • Jeremy Clark, Assistant Professor at Concordia University

  • Kenrick Bagnall, Cybercrime Investigator for the Toronto Police Services

  • Ashkan Amiri, Data Scientist at the Royal Bank of Canada

  • Alice Hutchings, Research Associate at the University of Cambridge

  • And more!

The APWG will host the eleventh Symposium on Electronic Crime Research (eCrime 2016) in Toronto between June 1st-3rd, 2016.

As a partner for this event, SERENE-RISC will co-host a one-day multi-disciplinary tutorial on May 31st, 2016.

Furthermore, ten 500$ scholarships are on the table for Canadian graduate students to attend the tutorial and the eCrime 2016 Symposium, in exchange for the production of an article summary that will be published in the SERENE-RISC digest. Students supervised by SERENE-RISC researchers will be considered in priority, but others are also welcome to apply.
