Financial institution and security executives to discuss online banking fraud prevention strategies, FFIEC guidance

RSA CONFERENCE (PRWEB) February 27, 2012 -- Guardian Analytics, the market leader in behavioral analytics-based fraud prevention solutions, today announced that CEO Terry Austin will lead a Peer2Peer session on Wednesday, Feb. 29 at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. In the session, “Progress Report: FFIEC’s New Online Banking Guidance,” Austin will lead a discussion with financial executives and security professionals tackling online banking fraud prevention challenges and best practices.

When the FFIEC updated the guidance on online banking security last June, US financial institutions were mandated to re-assess risks and update security strategies by this January. Regarding layered security practices, the guidance specifically outlined two minimum expectations: (1) the ability to detect and respond to suspicious activity at login and initiation of transactions in all accounts, and (2) enhanced controls of administrative functions for business accounts. Attendees will discuss how they’ve addressed these new guidelines to date and share strategies for protecting their institutions and customers from today’s threats in light of the new industry directives.

As CEO of Guardian Analytics, Austin is responsible for guiding the company’s strategic growth and vision to help financial institutions of all sizes prevent online and mobile banking fraud. He is a regular speaker and contributor at security, payments and financial industry events, sharing best practices for fraud mitigation.

Details for the session are as follows:
