On Tuesday, March 30 @ 1pm (ET) join Brent Barker for a webinar on What You Need to Know About Cryptocurrency Crime.
The pandemic has accelerated the mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies. They are growing in use and value. Bitcoin recently hit a new high of over $55,000. But Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies are also being used in a growing variety of crimes. They are being stolen, used as payments for crime, used for money laundering, and used by counties to avoid international sanctions. Even as authorities are learning how to investigate cryptocurrency crimes and track cryptocurrency ownership, new harder-to-track forms of cryptocurrencies are being created. The webinar will examine how criminals are stealing and using cryptocurrencies and law enforcement efforts to stop them.
This webinar has been approved for 1 CSC credit hour through IAPSC and 1 CPE credit hour through ASIS.
IAPSC Members: FREE
*Once registered, you will receive an email on the morning of Monday, March 29 with the webinar link and joining instructions.
