Joe Micara presents

On June 25 at 2:30p CDT, senior cybercrime engineer Joe Micara will present “Using Shared Intelligence to Reduce Mobile Cybercrime and Improve Customer Recognition,” a workshop for gaining an understanding of mobile attack vectors and how they differ from traditional online attacks. In addition to providing data analyses of actual mobile device attacks, Micara will share examples of how to detect attacks and prevent them using shared intelligence and the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network.

Micara on providing security without diminishing the user experience

“Trust and consumer experience are critical for customer loyalty,” said Micara. “More than one in five of all online banking transactions are now coming from a mobile device. This rapid adoption rate has opened a new frontier for cybercriminals to exploit weaknesses in mobile channel security, making mobile fraud and cybercrime detection rather complex. At the summit, I’ll share how to put preventative security measures in place that do not add friction to the user experience, which is what compels customers to use mobile devices in the first place.”

The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network lets financial institutions evaluate digital identities and identify cybercriminals in real time to stop them cold

Micara will discuss ways for financial institutions to mitigate the core risk of compromised credentials on mobile devices by using a layered approach. This includes using shared intelligence so companies can look beyond their firewalls to share actionable threat intelligence.

The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network brings together all aspects of a person’s online devices and behavior into one unique digital identity – including email addresses, geo-locations, devices and both personal and business personas.
