Yesterday James R. Clapper Jr., the US Director of National Intelligence, told a Senate panel that the threat of cyberattacks was now more pressing than the risk of an attack by global terrorist networks.

According to an article in the New York Times, it was the first time that Mr. Clapper listed cyberattacks first in his presentation to Congress, and the rare occasion since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks that intelligence officials did not list international terrorism first in the catalog of dangers facing the United States.

Of course this is not just a problem for the USA, it is a global issue, but what are the current threats and trends? How do cybercriminals operate, obtain goods, and launder funds? Find out in a webinar that takes place on Thursday 14th March at 14:00 GMT (15:00 CET, 10:00 EDT).
