One question

Q: Is it all that hard to steal $60 million anymore?

A: Nowadays, [criminals can] get in and get out fast. A faceless crime. Stealth and speed are the weapons of the cybercriminal. We don’t have to evade a national manhunt. We are able to do this in seconds or milliseconds around the world at a click of a button. Cybercriminals are naturally a little bit nervous about physical danger. They don’t like the idea. However, there are still criminals in the world who are quite comfortable with physical danger and high risk. What we see is those things coming together. There’s been an amazing integration between traditional [criminals] and cybercriminals … when the combination comes together, the power that they can influence around the world is phenomenal.
