ThreatMetrix Executives to Participate in Three of the Top Security Publisher’s Unique One-Day Fraud Summits

San Jose, CA – September 11, 2014 – ThreatMetrix®, the fastest-growing provider of context-based security and advanced fraud prevention solutions, today announced it will present at the Information Security Media Group (ISMG) annual Fraud Summits in Toronto, London and New York on September 17, Sept. 23 and Oct. 21, respectively.

Andreas Baumhof, chief technology officer at ThreatMetrix, will speak on a panel at the Toronto summit entitled “Real World Applications of Big Data Analytics – Social Network Analysis and Post Breach Fraud Detection.” The panel will focus on how big data is being used to detect and prevent fraud, specifically focusing on two use cases that are currently providing significant real-world value: social network analysis and post breach fraud detection. Additionally, Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer at ThreatMetrix, will present at the London and New York summits.

“At ThreatMetrix, we know a collective approach to cybersecurity through the use of big data is far more effective than leaving every entity to fend for themselves,” said Bert Rankin, chief marketing officer at ThreatMetrix. “We’re thrilled to lend our expertise to ISMG for another round of their groundbreaking fraud summits.”

ISMG, publisher of BankInfoSecurity, CUInfoSecurity and InfoRiskToday hosts the one-day events to showcase the top fraud trends of 2014. The ISMG summits, supported by industry-leading companies and associations such as (ISC)2, ISSA, ACT Canada, Interac, and most recently ThreatMetrix, are the forum for experts to share practical insights to help combat the many forms of fraud impacting financial institutions, retail, card issuers, and law enforcement. Attendees will hear from top experts in the industry, including attorneys, analysts, researchers and banking/security practitioners on topics ranging from account takeover to retail breaches, the mobile banking threatscape to banking Trojans. Other confirmed speakers for upcoming Fraud Summits include Julie Conroy of Aite, Tim Webb of RBS Citizens Bank, Dan McKenzie of RBC Bank and Mark Sullivan of Interac Association.

“The Fraud Summits focus exclusively on the top fraud trends impacting organizations and the mitigation strategies to overcome those challenges,” said Tom Field, vice president of editorial at ISMG. “Attendees enter these day-long sessions with questions, and they leave with new answers.”
