Alisdair Faulkner, ThreatMetrix Chief Products Officer, to Speak on Device Identification as Part of a Layered Security Strategy and Best Practices in Fraud Detection and Prevention

LOS ALTOS, CA. – September 23, 2011 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest growing provider of fraud prevention solutions that do not require personally identifiable information (PII), today announced that its chief products officer, Alisdair Faulkner, will be speaking alongside other industry thought leaders in a September 29 webinar on “FFIEC Guidance: How to Use Layered Security to Fight Fraud.” The webinar is hosted by BankInfoSecurity and co-sponsored by ThreatMetrix, LexisNexis Risk Solutions and Attachmate Corporation.

Faulkner will be joined by Matthew Speare, senior vice president of information technology at M & T Bank Corporation, who will discuss how his institution has tackled the layered security strategy in all aspects of electronic banking. Other webinar presenters and co-sponsoring companies include Michael Smith, fraud market planning lead of LexisNexis Risk Solutions, and Mark Benoit, security specialist at Attachmate Corporation.

In response to heightened incidents of fraud against banking institutions and customers, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) recently released a supplement to its “Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment” guidance, which was first issued by the FFIEC in October 2005.

“In my presentation, I will demonstrate how our fraud prevention platform is the most cost effective first perimeter of defense for banking institutions and e-commerce companies in their daily fight against online fraud,” said Faulkner. “The ThreatMetrix™ Cloud-Based Fraud Prevention Platform provides banking and financial institutions with smart device identification — complex device identification — and contextual risk scoring that fully complies with the specific layered customer authentication security program recommendations spelled out by the FFIEC.”

WHAT: Webinar participants will 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 banks to more efficiently and effectively know their customers, improve fraud detection and create layered protection across all maintenance activities and customer devices.

WHEN: 1 p.m. EDT, Thursday, September 29, 2011
