ThreatMetrix to Speak at BAI Payments Connect Conference
Posted March 8, 2012
The Session Will Detail Why an Integrated Device Identification and Malware Prevention Solution Provides the Optimal Fraud Prevention Strategy
San Jose, CA –March 8, 2012 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated cybercrime prevention solutions, today announced that Andy Swett, director of business development, ThreatMetrix, will be speaking at the BAI Payments Connect 2012 Conference and Expo. The event will take place March 12-14 at The Mirage Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
BAI Payments Connect — geared toward payments professionals focused on emerging payments strategies, payments fraud and check imaging — will cover industry-wide challenges in today’s changing regulatory environment.
Current FFIEC authentication guidance, for instance, recommends a layered security program that combines complex device identification and anti-malware controls. Swett will specifically be speaking on the importance of integrated device identification and malware protection as it relates to this FFIEC guidance. He will also highlight why an approach integrating advanced device identification, sophisticated malware protection and a global intelligence network is the most effective first layer defense to protect valuable assets and customers.
“Today’s payments professionals need to understand the complex strategies for safeguarding online banking activities, and the importance of implementing a multi-layered approach to fraud prevention,” said Swett. “In a time when cybercrime is at an all-time high, it’s critical that financial institutions are providing added layers of fraud prevention beyond authentication.”
