Vendor Spotlight, Presented by LegitScript
Speaker: Andy Vrabel, Director of Merchant Monitoring
Location: Solar Flare - Main Stage
Identifying one transaction laundering website isn't enough these days to stop bad actors. Transaction launderers increasingly create a network of accounts, known as merchant clusters, as a way of load balancing. In this spotlight presentation, LegitScript's Director of Merchant Monitoring will walk you through a real case study of how LegitScript analysts uncovered a massive transaction laundering network from just one violative website. You'll see the steps we took to uncover thousands of clustered merchants, and learn tips about what you can do in your own investigations.
Wednesday the 29th, 1:00 - 1:45pm
