July 2016 Monthly Event

The AFCEA Tokyo (東京) family is back at it again with out first monthly event since our successful AFCEA Tokyo (東京) TechNet 2016 event in early June. We are pleased to welcome back Jim Pelczar for a really interesting and timely topic: the Japan ATM heist.

[alert title=”INFO: ” type=”info”]If you, like what appears to be three-quarters of Japan, are playing the popular PokemonGo mobile game, this is a unique opportunity to enter a U.S. facility and potentially acquire pokemon you may not otherwise be able to catch due to the secure nature of The New Sanno.[/alert]

Using publically available information, kill chain, and an analysis of the necessary inputs and processes to enable the outputs of the 2016 Japan ATM heist, Jim Pelczar will present possible explanations. Although the full story will probably not be disclosed for quite some time, a great deal of useful information will be examined.
Jim will present in English and Japanese.

Jim Pelczar, long active in anti-fraud and anti-money laundering, is a contributing author to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners’Bribery and Corruption Casebook (2012, John Wiley and Sons), a Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), and Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE). He earned his Bachelors’ and Masters’ Degrees in Engineering.
