Liberty Reserve Money Laundering Case: The New Face of Cybercrime? – William S. Rogers Jr. Panelist at RSA Conference – February 27, 2014

February 27, 2014

Cybercrime has become increasingly creative, sophisticated, and complex. With much of the activity generated by organized criminal efforts, the threats to businesses and corporations worldwide have never been greater. Using unregulated electronic currency such as Bitcoin, Liberty Reserve is said by U.S. federal authorities to have engaged in a massive global money laundering conspiracy, enabling crimes of human trafficking, child pornography, narcotics trafficking, blackmail, and extortion.

In this session, the panel will examine the Liberty Reserve precedent-setting case from the legal, risk impact, and insurance perspectives.
