ThreatMetrix Joins Forces with Imperva and WhiteHat Security in Multi-City Executive Breakfast Series

Posted April 26, 2013

ThreatMetrix’s Faulkner Says Fraud and Security Professionals Need to Evolve to Think in Terms of Visitors, Behavior and Trust Rather Than Yesterday’s Usernames and Passwords

San Jose, CA – April 26, 2013 –ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated web fraud and cybersecurity solutions, today announced that it is participating with Imperva, a pioneer and leader of a new category of business security solutions for critical applications and high-value business data in the data center, and WhiteHat Security, the Web security company, in a multi-city executive breakfast series from April 30 in New York, N.Y. to May 23 in Dallas, TX.

ThreatMetrix chief products officer Alisdair Faulkner will present along with Imperva and WhiteHat Security executives and Gartner analysts Neil MacDonald and Joseph Feiman who will share their experiences working with businesses around the world and explain the steps they are taking to protect applications against hackers.

Attendees will also learn:

• The attack vectors behind recent headline-grabbing website breaches

• The most common website vulnerabilities

• New online fraud schemes that are undermining companies of all sizes

“You can’t run an online business or a country if you can’t differentiate between known trusted visitors and hackers using stolen credentials,” said Faulkner. “Unfortunately user account takeover attacks are the new spam in terms of their prevalence and automation, but with much more explosive impacts to e-commerce, privacy and national security. The problem today is that most fraud and security professionals continue to think in terms of usernames and passwords when they should be thinking about visitors, behavior and trust. To be effective, however, a collective problem like Web attacks, fraud and stolen identities need a collective solution which means better ways for sharing anonymized visitor intelligence in real-time.”
