Los Altos, Calif. (PRWEB) July 11, 2011
Guardian Analytics, the innovator in predictive analytics-based fraud prevention software, announced it will host a complimentary educational webinar titled “FFIEC Guidance is Out – Now What?” on Tuesday, July 12 at 1:00 p.m. ET. The webinar will explore the impact of the recently unveiled “Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment” supplementary guidance, and steps financial institutions can take to meet the new expectations set forth by the FFIEC. Leading the discussion will be George Tubin, senior research director at leading financial services research firm, TowerGroup. To register for the webinar, visit http://bit.ly/npjmrp.
In the webinar, Tubin will address how the Supplement raises the bar on the Agencies’ expectations for risk assessments and layered security including the two minimum layers of security in place to protect themselves and their account holders from the ever-evolving cyber criminal attacks: “processes designed to detect anomalies and effectively respond to suspicious or anomalous activity” and “enhanced controls for system administrators who are granted privileges to set up or change system configurations.”
Beyond providing a breakdown of what the guidelines are and are not saying, the webinar reveals how financial institutions can build an effective layered security strategy that first and foremost meets the guidance and then bolsters defenses against the growing threats in online and mobile banking.
Attendees will also hear case studies presented by Guardian Analytics from large and small institutions that have already deployed the anomaly detection capability now expected for all institutions, and the subsequent operational efficiencies they’ve experienced.
Details for the webinar are as follows:
