MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
Terry Austin, CEO of Guardian Analytics, the market leader in behavioral analytics-based fraud prevention solutions, will be speaking today at the CUNA Technology Council Conference in San Antonio, Texas. Addressing the security concerns credit unions are facing as they race to meet member demand for new and improved online offerings, Austin will examine real-world challenges and solutions in a session entitled “Adding Online Services Without Introducing Risk.” The CUNA Technology Council Conference is a premier industry event hosted annually for professionals seeking to shape the advancement of credit union technology.
Online banking is an expected component of any credit union member experience, but the channel can leave financial institutions vulnerable to increasingly stealthy fraudsters using ACH transfers, money mule schemes and man-in-browser attacks to perpetrate scams. In his presentation, Austin will discuss best practices for credit unions to implement the additional online and mobile services their members want while simultaneous protecting themselves and members from cybercriminal threats. Austin will also offer real-word examples to better illustrate how layered security, such as the approach outlined in the updated FFIEC guidelines, and anomaly detection have successfully thwarted fraud attacks and the potential financial losses.
As CEO of Guardian Analytics, Austin is responsible for guiding the company’s strategic vision and growth in preventing fraud. An experienced veteran in e-commerce, mobile and enterprise technology platforms, Austin previously held executive positions at companies such as MarketLive, Good Technology, EMEA and Manugistics prior to joining Guardian Analytics.

What: “Adding Online Services Without Introducing Risk”
