Cybercriminals are taking hacking to the next level by leveraging ever-more sophisticated toolsets and increasingly mature techniques.  Cryptocurrency mining is the latest trend for criminals, who break into servers, install miners, and use stolen PII from your databases to set up wallets for transferring funds.  We'll view a hacker's wallet setup in action, including screenshots of the criminal's web surfing history and falsified documents uncovered through forensic analysis.  In 2019, we expect to see more dangerous types of cyber extortion, where criminals demand ransom payments not just from the hacked organization, but also clients, patients, vendors, and employees.
