ISMG Announces Release of 2012 Faces of Fraud Survey Results

Princeton, NJ, April 06, 2012 --( Information Security Media Group (ISMG) will announce results of its 2012 Faces of Fraud survey in the upcoming webinar, 2012 Faces of Fraud Survey: Complying with the FFIEC Guidance, which debuts April 10 at 1 p.m. ET.

The annual survey reveals the latest fraud trends and how institutions are fighting back, as well as their progress with creating and maintaining layered security controls in conformance with the FFIEC Authentication Guidance.

The updated guidance has been in circulation since mid-2011, but as banking examiners begin testing for conformance, the Faces of Fraud survey results show:

-Only 11% of surveyed institutions are currently in conformance;
-More than 30% don't fully understand the guidance;
-89% do not believe the guidance will result in a significant reduction of online fraud.

Join a distinguished panel of fraud experts for an exclusive first look at the eye-opening survey results and how institutions can act upon them, including:

-A look at 2012's top fraud threats;
-How banking institutions are countering these threats;
-Top security investments to fight fraud and conform to the FFIEC Authentication Guidance.

Faces of Fraud is an annual study, providing insights that can be tracked and measured over time. Results are analyzed and disseminated through a variety of electronic media, including audio interviews, this webinar and presentations at major industry events.
