Wired senior editor Kevin Poulsen, will be stopping by the SX Bookstore to meet fans and sign copies of his new work, Kingpin: How One Hacker Took Over the Billion Dollar Cyber Crime Underground.
Through the story of Max Butler (May Ray Vision), a brilliant young hacker turned real-life supervillain who seized sole control of a multibillion-dollar criminal network, investigative journalist Kevin Poulsen takes us on an unprecedented journey into the modern hacking underworld.
Using a blend of cunning grifts and custom software, Max Butler stole millions from modest credit unions, financial behemoths, even fellow hackers. But his most daring feat--and his eventual undoing--came when he succeeded in crowning himself sole ruler of a worldwide computer fraud network. Over the next year, a team of FBI and Secret Service agents would single-mindedly devote themselves to hunting down this underworld's new kingpin.

Latin America is still behind the U.S. in Internet technology, but cyber crime has become a big issue in the region. In this session I will explain the growth of cyber crime in Mexico, including what drug cartels are doing, and discuss the lack of resources available in Mexico on how to combat cyber crime. Finally, I will discuss the example of start-up Hacking México, the first online information security and expert community formed to combat cybercrime, using online communication tools promoting computer forensics, research, education, and the use of technology such as bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, cryptography, telecommunications and cryptovirology, as well as efforts to combat cyber-drug trafficking.
