Think like a criminal
Criminals don’t think like you joker’s self defence
Mark Phooi’s unusual approach to life – thinking like a sage, working like a fool, and behaving like a criminal – has helped him rise above poverty and mediocrity to become one of Singapore’s most influential designpreneurs, against all odds.
Lancer Design was created by Mark in February 1989 when he was 27 years old. He founded First Media Pte Ltd (FM) in 2002 as a holding company to oversee his portfolio of design firms and institutions. FM was one of only five companies to win the Enterprise 50 Award in 2005, which honors Singapore’s most promising privately-held enterprises. Mark received one of the Top Entrepreneurs of the Year Awards (organized by the Association of Small and Medium Enterprises (ASME) and the Rotary Club of Singapore) in 2006, one of Singapore’s highest business honors and one that no trained designer had ever received before. Mark was also one of the finalists in Singapore’s highest design award, the President’s Design Award, in 2007.

Many people have a false sense of security with the newer microchip cards, according to our experience.
While the move away from magnetic strip technology has reduced card fraud, not all retailers or ATM owners are on board; many are unwilling to invest in new equipment.

This is why Ori Eisen, the CEO and founder of Trusona, sought the advice of former con man Frank Abagnale Jr., the star of the award-winning film Catch Me If You Can, amid a 20-year friendship.
Of course, today’s crime has a major physical component. However, there has been a criminal trend into the digital over the last 20 years. According to Cybersecurity Projects, cybercrime would cost the global economy $6 trillion a year by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015.
Although the attack surface area has changed, Mr Abagnale said that “the one thing that never changes is that criminals are all the same.” “So, if you think like a suspect, you will find out their motivations and means no matter what they do.”
“One thing I’ve noticed is that any violation happens because someone in that organization did something they weren’t supposed to do, or neglected to do something they were supposed to do,” he clarified.
He cited the Equifax data breach as an example: the company failed to upgrade its systems and failed to apply Microsoft security patches. The hackers gained access to the system and sat there for a year contemplating what data to steal. They wanted to steal 148 million credit reports and 12 million driver’s licenses after this time frame.
