Sharing Insider Threat Indicators: Examining the Potential Use of SWIFT's Messaging Platform to Combat Cyber Fraud
Written by Elizabeth Petrie, Director of Cyber Threat Risk Management at Citibank, and Casey Evans, KCGC Faculty Fellow
This paper focuses on identifying the patterns of behavior typically indicative of efforts by criminals to use insiders to cash out on fraudulent activity. The research explores the potential for organizations to use an existing telecommunication platform, such as SWIFT, to communicate cyber fraud threat information by establishing indicators of cashout behavior, which could warn of cyber fraud activity. An example of what this might look like using an MT998 message is included in the paper.
