Kim Peretti, co-chair of the firm’s Security Incident Management & Response Team and former senior litigator for the Justice Department’s Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section, was interviewed by Information Security Media Group on the unsealed indictments released last week against the five men accused of hacking the computer network of several major corporations.
“The indictments, which include charges against four Russians and a Ukrainian with alleged connections to Heartland Payment Systems hacker Albert Gonzalez, have revealed a number of new details about network attacks and breaches dating back to 2005.” Peretti, as a prosecutor at the Department of Justice, successfully prosecuted and convicted Albert Gonzalez.
- how the indictments will serve as a deterrent;
- global card fraud trends investigators are watching; and
- how payments fraud is migrating down to smaller merchants—a growing concern for law enforcement and the payments industry.
