Latin American Banks Warned Against Next Phase Of Cyber crime

The past few years have been quite a challenge for the finance sector of Latin America. In a recent report published by Organization of American States or OAS, the series of cyber crime that infected the region has had its negative results. According to banker Leonardo Gonzalez Dellan, high profile cases have been reported this year. Banks that were reportedly victims of cyber crime are those from Chile and Mexico. Based on tips received, the source is traced back to North Korea.

The Organization of American States, however, clarified that it is only the tip of the problems because the group confirmed that nine in every ten banks all over the Latin America including the Caribbean has been subjected to cyber attacks. The most worrying fact is that 37 per cent of the said financial institutions admitted that they have been on the receiving end of one or more successful cyber attacks.

The published report includes data from 191 banks all over the region. It was presented in Washington, D.C. during the Cybersecurity Symposium organized by the Organization of American States.

In a statement by the general secretary of the Organization of American States, Luis Almagro, the rate of digitization is quite high in the financial sector, most especially the banking department. The number of bank customers that are employing electronic banking continues to rise each day. They use the internet to process transactions and utilize their mobile devices for payments.

Business models are changing in order to adapt the latest technologies and to make use of the digital channels available but there are also downside to these developments such as the risks presented by cybersecurity. Therefore it presents a new list of priority that must be given importance in order to prevent any attacks in the future.

According to 80 per cent of the banking institutions, the latest attacks are caused by malware or malicious codes on the software, 57 per cent said that clear desk policies are violated and 57 per cent is phishing. It is quite different from the time when Leonardo Gonzalez Dellan was still in the banking sector because technology was not so advanced then.

Stanton Grant Raided By Victoria Authorities Regarding Bikie Money Laundering

South Melbourne firm Stanton Grant Legal, known for their personal and probate lawyers in Melbourne, was raided late in March and seized by local authorities from its partners and placed under the supervision of a legal regulator-chosen manager, as part of the authorities’ anti-bikie efforts.

There were a lot of corporate, personal and probate lawyers in Melbourne sweating, as dozens of law firms across the region were raided as part of investigations with alleged money laundering done by the notorious Aussie motorcycle outlaw gang, the Comancheros.

Howard Rapke, a managing partner at Holding Redlich law firm, was appointed by the Legal Services Board as the manager of Stanton Grant Legal, granting him authority of the daily operations of the firm for as long as the LSB decided.  Mr. Rapke, in a statement, confirmed this appointment, but did not reveal why he was chosen to manage Stanton Grant Legal. He also didn’t elaborate on how long the appointment would hold.

The anti-bikie operations, led by Echo Taskforce, executed several search warrants late in March, with Stanton Grant Legal being one of the targets of the raids, which included accountancy firms, gyms, tattoo parlours, other legal firms, and even brothels. Nine people were also charged with a wide range of infractions, which included drug possession, and false accounting, among others.

Reportedly, one of the key targets of the raids was David Graer, self-described “forensic accountant”, who has connected to a property developer that was under investigation from the Australian Taxation Office regarding tax evasion. Though he was not directly charged, one of the targeted locations were a known property of Mr. Graer.

Regarding the anti-bikie efforts, Comanchero Mick Murray, who was in jail for not answering inquiries made by the covert Office of the Chief Examiner, a government agency set up specifically for dealing with organized crime.

The verdict was passed in a Supreme Court hearing late in March, a week before the raids, which led to Murray receiving an eight-month sentence for contempt of the chief examiner. Details regarding the judgement revealed that Murray did not go under the oath of affirmation when asked by the court. Murray says that the Crimes Commission is the worst-kept secret in Melbourne, with everyone knowing and hearing of what happens.
