Episode details:

Ever wondered how to rob a bank? In this episode of Threat Talks you will explore this with our special guest, Jayson E Street. He is a renowned cybersecurity professional and speaker and is known for his legal bank heists. He once took just 15 seconds to breach a bank’s security. But how does he do it?

Jayson’s approach isn’t about ski masks and guns, it’s about exploiting human nature. “I walk in looking like an IT guy with a USB drive. People don’t suspect me,” he explains. His method involves circumventing the technology by targeting untrained staff. This highlights the critical need for proper training in cybersecurity.

We also touch on three major vulnerabilities: the SWIFT Gateway, the Vulture Android banking malware, and the Binance crypto hack.

But why does Jayson install malware instead of taking cash? Tune in and find out his strategy!
