Athul Harilal, Threat Intelligence R&D Lead at Uppsala Security, presented during “RISE Indonesia 2022”
Singapore, May 20th 2022 — Uppsala Security, a state-of-the-art provider of award-winning security tools and services for Crypto AML/CTF, Transaction Risk Management, Regulatory Compliance, Transaction Tracking, and Cyber Security recently announced the participation of Athul Harilal as a speaker during “RISE Indonesia 2022”, a cybersecurity focused event that took place between 11th — 13th of May 2022 in Bali, Indonesia.
“RISE-Indonesia” [Regional Internet Security Event] was organized by CSIRT-ID and Team Cymru, a growing Threat Intelligence company based in Orlando, Florida, USA that is focussed on saving and improving human lives. They run 4 InfoSec conferences a year that are completely funded by sponsors and free for delegates to attend. They have commercial and no cost solutions designed for network operators worldwide. See their next events listed here.
During his presentation Athul, one of the masterminds behind the Uppsala Security’s Threat Intelligence products, services and investigations, focused on the Money Laundering Techniques Employed by Malicious Actors. Based on researched data using Uppsala Security’s products such as the Crypto Analysis Transaction Visualization (CATV) or the upcoming Crypto Asset Monitor Solution (CAMS), various illustrations displaying money flow behaviors by threat actors as well as simple traders were shown to the on-site participants, in order to emphasize the differences between their conduct and set the base for Outlier cases.
Key takeaways from the shared research were the fact that the forwarding or the splitting of funds remains one of the most used techniques by malicious actors while exchanges are not only used for encashing/ swapping coins, but also to launder illicit funds — which also means that exchanges can make a significant difference in unravelling threat actor activity.
