Flashpoint Director of Security Research Allison Nixon discusses SIM swap, a lucrative form of fraud that is turning profits for criminals and quickly gaining more attention from the security research community and law enforcement alike.

In this podcast, Allison describes the machinations of a SIM swap scheme, starting with the criminals who cook up these capers and often recruit insiders at a telecommunications company to take part in these scams, to the places where the industry is coming up short in defending against it.
