You don’t have to be Bernie Madoff to know that not everything going on in the world of finance is totally in tune with the rules of governance. There is a shady underbelly in the online and financial realms that we at The Standards wanted to delve into. That is why we once again recruited the genius Sunny Bates from the brain trust over at TED to help us answer some of the questions that are burning up our wallets and our email inboxes.
In the next installment of Standard Talks, taking place on Wednesday March 14th at The Standard, New York, we will explore what and who lies in the dark corners of the online and financial worlds. From the mafias hiding behind the computer screen, to the hackers bringing down multinational organizations and stopping by to explore what people can do with the money you entrust them; what we will uncover is more vast and complex than you could possibly imagine.
With Misha Glenny, journalist and author of “McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld” and more recently “DarkMarket: Cyberthieves, Cybercops and You”; and Jim Mintz, private investigator of financial crimes; and Kevin Slavin, entrepreneur, raconteur, provocateur. Where there is smoke…Kevin is nearby.
Come with us as we go behind your inbox and discover the incredibly complex network of programs, people and organizations working in the dark.
