Digital Identities: Modern Underground Currencies

Saturday, March 12
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 9ABC
531 E 4th St


How much is a SSN worth on the dark web? What about a driver’s license, a credit card number or a health record? Every day, hackers are buying and selling consumers’ stolen data and engaging in a whole world of commerce unseen by those outside of the dark web. They’re raking in hundreds, even thousands of dollars with each transaction. This session will dive into the digital currencies of this underground marketplace and provide an inside look at how transactions take place between cybercriminals through a live demonstration. Adam will show how these cybercriminals collaborate and exchange ideas with each other to steal data, and also offer tips for consumers to keep their data safe.
