Episode 13: Let’s Talk FinCrime with the Original Internet Godfather
How can we protect ourselves against criminals who have been social engineering their entire lives? As we kick off season three, we’ll talk to Brett Johnson, a former fraudster that built up the first organized cybersecurity community, who now shares his strategies on how to help protect the average person from financial crime.
The United States Secret Service called Brett Johnson "The Original Internet Godfather" for his role in refining modern financial cybercrime. Brett was convicted of 39 felonies, placed on the US Most Wanted List, escaped from prison and built the first organized cybercrime community, Shadowcrew. Shadowcrew was a precursor to today's darknet and darknet markets, and laid the foundation for the way modern cybercrime channels operate today.
Today, Brett is considered one of the leading authorities on cybercrime, identity theft, and cybersecurity on the planet. He works hard to protect businesses and consumers from the type of person he used to be.
