Behind Canadian Mobile Payment Phishing Campaigns

We have all received phishing text messages promising tax refunds, utility payment credits or e-transfers from unknown sources. We tracked some of these messages coming from Canadian phone numbers and analysed the sites they lead to. They use web pages and domain names similar to large Canadian institutions to lure victims in typing their personal information in fake forms. Who sent those text messages? What happens when we click on the links? We’ll try to answer some of these questions and take you through an actual investigation, highlighting the positive results of collaboration between private sector, financial institutions and law enforcement.

Tackling Cyber-enabled fraud. What does it take?

The pressure to tackle financial crime, especially cyber-enabled fraud has never been greater. Using digital technologies, criminals are perpetrating increasingly sophisticated financial crimes across channels, geographies, and industries. As criminal methodologies evolve, new technologies heighten customer expectations, and new regulations raise the cost of compliance, it is getting increasingly complex to manage financial crime risks. To avoid falling behind, financial institutions need to reconsider their approach to mitigating financial crime.
This presentation will offer recent threat landscape on cyber-enabled fraud globally building on Deloitte’s global threat intelligence network and provide a pragmatic approach to tackling these threats.
