Ronald Cheng, a partner at the law firm O'Melveny & Myers, and former cyber prosecutor for eight years in the U.S. Department of Justice, will discuss the current state of cybercrime, the types of cybercrimes typically investigated by law enforcement agencies, the methods used to gather evidence, and recent legislation in the United States to encourage the sharing of information between industry and law enforcement.
In particular, Mr. Cheng will discuss the challenges facing law enforcement cybercrime in investigating current cybercrime trends such as business email compromises and "man-in-the-middle" fraud attacks, as well as the challenges that arise in international law enforcement cooperation.
Mr. Cheng will also discuss several of the cases that he handled as a prosecutor, including an international phishing fraud against major U.S. banks conducted in both Egypt and the United States, and an investigation of "hack-for-hire" websites that offered to steal email account passwords for a fee.
