Brett Johnson and Karisse Hendrick: The Online Fraudcast Live

The Online Fraudcast

Sponsored by:


The Online Fraudcast is a collaboration between Brett Johnson and Karisse Hendrick—two fraud and cybercrime experts who took very different journeys to arrive at the same place.

Johnson was one of the first and most notorious cybercriminals—nicknamed “The Original Internet Godfather” by the United States Secret Service. He built and was the leader of ShadowCrew, the precursor to today’s darknet markets and was a pioneer developing and refining fraud techniques that persist today including Card Not Present Fraud, Identity Theft, Account Take Over Fraud and countless other social engineering attacks, breaches, and hacking operations.

After a stint on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, several arrests and a lengthy imprisonment, Johnson realized he could use his experience to prevent companies and consumers from becoming victims of those same bad guys he once led. Today he works as a security consultant and public speaker in very high demand. He has been featured in the book, "Kingpin" by Kevin Poulsen and on numerous media outlets, including the New York Times, NBC, CNN Money, Wired Magazine, Vice, RT TV, ArsTechnica, The Independent, and more.

Hendrick has spent more than a decade working with most of the world's largest e-commerce and mobile companies, helping them tailor their fraud operations to more effectively predict and prevent fraud attacks that sap profitability and derail the customer experience. She is known and trusted within the industry as the “merchant’s merchant” – always looking for ways to help companies and consumers by thwarting the continuous and ever evolving threats from the bad guys.

In 2018 Karisse and Brett launched the iTunes 5-star rated “Online Fraudcast” where this unlikely pair take their audience on weekly journeys discussing the latest trend’s on both sides of the front line of the online fraud battle. Listeners get to learn from these two experts on what is going on behind the scenes and what future threats are emerging. A must listen for anyone in the CNP payments and fraud space. As one listener put it “Come for the knowledge, stay for the banter, and take note on how to protect yourself and your customers.”

For the first time ever, The Online Fraudcast will be recorded live in front of a live audience at the CNP Expo and you, the audience, will get to take part in this historic event.
