The following is a compilation of press releases published by the ACFE.
Large-scale data breaches are now regular fixtures in the headlines, and as cybercriminals become more sophisticated, corporations and governments are rushing to keep up. “In almost four decades of security work, I have never witnessed a threat environment that has this type of volume, velocity and variety,” security expert Ray Boisvert told the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). “The myriad of threat actors, now spanning an entire globe with increasingly sharp capabilities to strike remotely, has now completely redefined for us what security parameters look like.”
Boisvert, associate partner of security for IBM Canada and former assistant director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service, will address hundreds of anti-fraud professionals in Montreal this October at the 2019 ACFE Fraud Conference Canada. “We're not winning this war of digital security,” he said. “We've found some areas of success, and admittedly some strong avenues of resilience pursuit, such as AI, automation and orchestration. But the costs of a data breach keep rising.”
