Officially titled the FS-ISAC & Bits Annual Summit 2015, this 3-day event is held by the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), a non-profit association of financial institutions. By disseminating trusted and timely information, the association’s aim is to protect the financial services sector from physical and cyberthreats and attacks.
To draw hundreds of financial industry professionals
Financial industry executives will have an opportunity to discuss the latest information about cybersecurity threats, trends and technology in the financial services sector. In addition, the summit will include presentations from more than three dozen senior executive FS-ISAC members.
Alisdair Faulkner, ThreatMetrix’s Chief Products Officer, to present on Wednesday May 20 (9:30-10:30 a.m. EDT)
Faulkner, who will be joined by Bryan Strong, a Senior VP and director of information security at Zions Bancorporation, will speak on “Enabling Customer Channel Innovation through Rapid Security Intelligence and Response.” The talk offers an opportunity for attendees to learn about the benefits of rapid security controls to detect cyberthreats in real time to be able to take action against those threats as soon as possible.
Alisdair Faulkner on rapid, accurate authentication
“Financial institutions currently face challenges in meeting the growing number of authentication guidelines in the wake of major data breaches, which have exposed many customers’ credentials. In the current cybercrime environment, financial institutions must assume identities and devices are compromised before authenticating transactions. With static controls, by the time a threat is identified, it takes financial institutions far too long to take action against it. At the summit, I’ll be discussing tactics for financial institutions to leverage a digital identity network to quickly and accurately authenticate good users and keep out cybercriminals.”
The ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network for real-time authentication
In order for financial institutions to assume digital identities and to identify cybercriminals in real time, the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network offers a layered approach to stop criminals in their tracks. Faulkner will be discussing several ways for financial institutions to mitigate a core risk of compromised credentials by using a layered approach. 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. This network enables financial institutions to meet authentication guidelines and to protect accounts against bots using stolen credentials by leveraging a global view of devices and persona behavior to detect anomalies.
