Executive to discuss drivers behind updated FFIEC guidance and implementing anomaly detection as a required best practice for online banking security.

Guardian Analytics, the market leader in behavioral analytics-based fraud prevention solutions, announced Eric LaBadie will present tomorrow at the NAFCU Technology and Security Conference, the annual event hosted by the National Association of Federal Credit Unions, in Las Vegas for a second consecutive year. LaBadie, vice president of sales and customer success, will share customer insights and online banking security best practices in the session, “FFIEC Online Banking Security Update – Anomaly Detection 101.”

In his presentation, LaBadie will offer a brief overview of the June 2011 Supplement to Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment; explain why the FFIEC updated the guidance in the context of the latest threats and online banking fraud trends; and provide in-depth insights into how anomaly detection works and why it addresses the widest range of attacks. Effective January 2012, the FFIEC expects all US financial institutions to incorporate the ability to detect anomalous activity into their security strategies as part of the clear minimum expectations it established in the 2011 Supplement. LaBadie will discuss a wide range of proof points of the effectiveness of anomaly detection and share case studies from credit unions already using anomaly detection successfully.
