Wishful Thinking Turned Up to ITs Maximum Delusion
NCA chief exec Lynne Owens said in a canned statement: “It is our assessment that Maksim Yakubets and Evil Corp – the cybercrime group he controls – represent the most significant cybercrime threat to the UK.”
Oh please, you cannot be serious, Lynne Owens, whenever the most significant cybercrime threats to the UK are invariably always classified Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information and as yet still both virtually and practically unknown.
“We will extend our reach, we have a long memory, we will relentlessly pursue individuals online.” ….. Rob Jones, director of the NCA’s cybercrime unit
How very We Are Anonymous of you, RJ.

And, … here is an ACTive Existential Threat Danger and Stealthy Treat Opportunity
Don’t you realise feel good news, whenever in any way fake, is both counter-productive and extremely revealing of a lack of actionable intelligence and missing necessary future abilities/facilities/missions?
And if this news of Russians is fake does “clever propaganda” jump the shark and/or morph into an AI with Seriously Smarter NeuroLinguistic Programming Skill Sets for those employed and deployed into what is in reality a novel mega metadata learning field?
Obviously here is the latter considered the present current default situation.

Re: They must have decided these guys are untouchable
The fact that they’ve had to _offer_ that kind of bounty even after “Russian authorities have cooperated” pretty much underscores their untouchability …. Alan Brown

Re: What was that ?
“Because many of the victims are small and medium enterprises, their accounts typically don’t have the same legal protections afforded to consumer accounts.”
What kind of schizophrenic country allows for different levels of legal protection following what entity it is that opens a bank account ? A bank account is a bank account, whether it is held by a corporation, a person or an illegal alien from Mars.
And how ironic that corporations who can potentially lobby to have laws written in their favor have less legal banking protection than voters whose votes don’t count. ….. Pascal Monett
You’d almost think the world is a crazy mad place in space, Pascal Monett.

Knock, Knock, Mr. Carney. Do you Really Want to Deny IT be So Easily Demonstrably So?
Jon Cunliffe, Deputy Governor for Financial Stability, said: “FMIs, both wholesale and retail, lay at the heart of the financial sector. They are the plumbing that allow the financial system to operate. The safe and resilient operation of FMIs is therefore crucial to the Bank’s financial stability objective. FMIs need to consider not only what steps they need to take to minimise operational disruption, but also how quickly they can recover from any operational disruption.”….. https://www.bankofengland.co.uk/news/2019/december/building-operational-resilience-impact-tolerances-for-import-business-services
You might like to realise, Jon C, FMIs already have considered what be expected and proposed to them and of the needs to feed to satisfy requirements, and have already implemented them with all manner of unusual and unconventional seeds intelligently designed to also provide for their future total protection.
It is therefore the Bank of England, PRA and FCA Troika which is rendered extremely vulnerable to suffering all the risks in these new ways of doing things disrupting events. Do they have any adequate viable defences is the one question for now that I would ask of all three of them?
There’s more than just a lot going on out there in the CyberIntelAIgent Realm and here, El Reg, but surely not at all unexpected …..
