By Christine Duhaime | March 11th, 2015

In case you missed it, our article in American Banker‘s Bank Think entitled “We Shouldn’t Be Relying on Hackers to Stop Terrorism Financing” can be read here.

The article discusses the recent phenomena of hackers in #OpISIS taking down the websites of the Islamic State and their stated promise to go after banks engaged in terrorist financing. It also discusses ways in which ISIS is funded and why counter-terrorist financing efforts are failing thus far and why it is of concern that hackers may be targeting global banks and their executives over terrorist financing, raising cyber-security issues.
