podium: That one time someone tried to blackmail KPN

When MSPs go bad


In February 2018, the Dutch and Slowakian police coordinated an international search and seizure for suspects and evidence in relation to a blackmail attempt against KPN. In October 2018, both suspects got convicted in public court. This talk will go through the internal investigation that lead up to the arrests and successful conviction of the criminals.

KPN was the target of a blackmail attempt in October 2017 by an ex-employee of a KPN MSP. KPN-CERT conducted and coordinated an investigation, assisting Dutch Law Enforcement, into the situation. As a result, two suspects were raided and arrested, and eventually convicted in public court.
