How Thieves Got Away with the Biggest Cyber Heist in History: a Technical ‘Who Done It’

If Hollywood releases another iteration of the 'Oceans 11' franchise, it should be based on the recent cyber attack against Bangladesh Bank. This true story has all the hallmarks of a captivating thriller – a sophisticated intrusion into the Bank’s network; a plot involving money laundering via casinos; possible links to criminal gangs; accusations of corrupt officials; and a conspiracy that would have required intricate planning.
BAE Systems’ Head of Threat Intelligence, Dr Adrian Nish, will explain the timeline of events that lead to the $81million heist and how ultimately there were only 2 bytes between the thieves and their loot.
