Cybercriminals Shift to More Private CryptocurrenciesAndrei Barysevich of Recorded Future Says Payments Harder to Track
Cybercrime investigators will face increasing difficulties if bad actors begin accepting more privacy-centric cryptocurrencies rather than bitcoin, says Andrei Barysevich of Recorded Future.
In this video interview at the recent RSA APJ 2018 conference in Singapore, Barysevich discusses:
- What trends are emerging within underground and Dark Web cybercriminal forums;
- How the cybercriminal underground has evolved into a sophisticated economy;
- Why cybercriminals are beginning to embrace cryptocurrencies other than bitcoin.
Barysevich is director of advanced collection for Recorded Future. He collects threat intelligence from secretive cybercriminal communities. He's also been a private consultant to the FBI's New York cybercrime field office and contributed data that has led to successful prosecutions of criminal syndicates.
