Flashpoint Director of Americas Research and Analysis Ian Gray discusses the proliferation—or lack thereof—of cryptocurrency usage and interest among cybercriminals operating in Latin America. While some criminal elements do cash out or mine cryptocurrency in the region, a lack of legal oversight and technical sophistication makes legitimate payment processors viable options. Gray and co-presenter Carles Lopez-Penalver of Chainanalysis presented on the topic this week at RSA Conference 2019 in San Francisco.
