Posted October 11, 2010

LOS ALTOS, CA. – October 12, 2010 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of fraud prevention solutions that do not require personally identifiable information (PII), is presenting from 3:10 – 3:30 p.m. ET, Thursday, October 28 on “Preventing Online Fraud with Device Fingerprinting Technology” at CSI 2010 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland. Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer, ThreatMetrix, will present case studies demonstrating the use of botnets and hidden proxies being used to commit fraudulent credit card transactions, account registrations and account takeover attacks, and how an anonymous Internet-scalable device fingerprinting and behavioral analytics system can be used to prevent cybercrime.

CSI 2010 is the leading IT security management conference on the East Coast. Designed for information security and IT professionals of all levels, the comprehensive program focuses on both technological as well as management solutions.

WHO: Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer, ThreatMetrix

WHAT: The use of botnet proxies, scripts and compromised computers to commit online fraud is now a mainstream problem for all online business. Learn how these tools are being used to defraud etailers, social networks and financial institutions through case studies, and understand how fraud prevention techniques have been forced to evolve. The presentation will provide an under-the-cover examination of an Internet scalable fraud prevention system that leverages anonymous device profiling through browser and packet fingerprinting combined with global behavioral analytics and real-time anomaly detection.

WHEN: 3:10 – 3:30 p.m. ET, Thursday, October 28

WHERE: Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, National Harbor, Maryland.

WHY: The scale of Internet fraud is sizeable and growing by every measure. According to CyberSource’s 11th Annual Fraud Report (352 U.S. and Canadian merchants), Internet retailers lost more than $3.3 billion to fraud last year and Javelin Strategy & Research 2009 Identity Fraud Survey Report stated that more than $48 billion was lost as a result of identity fraud. In fact, the numbers associated with these and other fraud reports are probably under reported as most merchants and the industry are reluctant to report the true extent of their losses due to fraud. Learn how botnet detection, device fingerprinting, protocol and network intelligence are being used to differentiate between valuable customers and fraudsters in real time.
