San Jose, CA – June 23, 2015 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, will host a workshop at the 2015 FST US Summit, which takes place June 24-26 in Dallas. Joe Micara, senior cybercrime engineer at ThreatMetrix, will discuss how using shared intelligence can reduce mobile cybercrime and improve customer recognition.

The 2015 FST US Summit will focus on reshaping the face of the financial services industry in an innovative world. Attendees will learn how to effectively transition into the digital age and connect with the customer of tomorrow, while ensuring security remains a top priority. Senior executives from both leading solution providers and end user organizations attend the event each year to network, mind-share and benchmark with industry peers. Leading analyst firms will also be in attendance to share cutting-edge industry insights.

Micara will present a workshop titled, “Using Shared Intelligence to Reduce Mobile Cybercrime and Improve Customer Recognition.” The session will take place on Thursday, June 25 at 2:30 p.m. CDT. Attendees at this workshop will gain an understanding of mobile attack vectors and how they differ from traditional online attacks, in addition to hearing data analysis from actual attacks on mobile devices. Micara will also share examples of how to detect attacks and prevent them using shared intelligence and the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network.

“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 the user experience, which is what compels customers to use mobile devices in the first place.”

In order for financial institutions to evaluate digital identities and identify cybercriminals in real time, the ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network offers a layered approach to stop criminals in their tracks. Micara will discuss several ways for financial institutions to mitigate the core risk of compromised credentials on mobile devices by using a layered approach, including the importance of understanding shared intelligence so companies can look beyond their firewall 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.
