Princeton, NJ, September 15, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Information Security Media Group, publisher of BankInfoSecurity, announces the launch of its latest webinar, "FFIEC Guidance: How to Use Layered Security to Fight Fraud," which will debut September 29.
The 90-minute session is sponsored by Attachmate, LexisNexis Risk Solutions and ThreatMetrix, and it will feature insight from Matthew Speare, SVP of IT at M&T Bank, as well as Mark Benoit, Security Specialist, Attachmate Corporation; Michael Smith, Fraud Market Planning Lead, LexisNexis Risk Solutions; and Alisdair Faulkner, Chief Products Officer, ThreatMetrix.
About the session: Layered security is one of the core tenets of the new FFIEC Authentication Guidance - and it's perhaps the most effective strategy for detecting and preventing banking fraud schemes. But what are some of today's most mature approaches to layered security, and how are banking institutions employing them to detect and prevent fraud at the transaction level and beyond?
Join a distinguished panel of industry experts to learn:
-The types of layered security controls prescribed by the FFIEC, and what examiners will be looking for from institutions starting in January 2012;
-Tips from banking institutions that are already deploying layered controls such as knowledge-based authentication, device identification, behavioral monitoring, anomaly detection and cross-channel pattern analysis;
-Emerging technologies that will enable more efficient and effective ways to know their customers, improve fraud detection and create layered protection across all maintenance activities and customer devices.
