An underground movement of hackers is taking over victim telephones and
draining their financial accounts! In the past 12 months, a California
high tech task force named REACT has identified more than 800 victims and nearly
$50 million in losses of cash and cryptocurrency. Please join Santa Clara
County Prosecutor Erin West and DA Investigator David Berry as they explain this
phenomenon known as “sim-swapping” and detail how the hackers are able to access
phones, hijack social media, and ultimately steal millions of dollars. We
will take a look at this new class of criminals and identify ways to protect
ourselves against this growing crime wave.
