San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated web fraud and cybersecurity solutions, today announced that it is sponsoring a webinar on May 2 hosted by Insurance Networking News on “Cyber-Crime: How Vulnerable Are You?” It will be led by Chuck Johnston, insurance research director for Celent, a research and consulting firm focused on the application of information technology in the global financial services industry, and Aarij Khan, senior director of product marketing, ThreatMetrix.
The webinar will address how hackers use a variety of techniques to capitalize on the trust insurance carriers place in their partners – brokers and field agents – to steal financial, medical and personal information. This includes using partners’ stolen account credentials and leveraging authenticated communication mechanisms. Like other financial businesses, insurers must protect their own financial assets, customer’s privacy and brand reputation against data breaches while meeting regulatory compliance.
“Cybercriminals have many tactics at their disposal, ranging from social engineering, phishing and pharming to sophisticated malware to intercept login credentials and personal identity information,” said Khan. “To combat these threats, the TrustDefender™ Cybercrime Protection Platform helps insurers detect and prevent data breaches while remaining agile and responsive to customers, agents, brokers and others. By combing insight from different technologies – malware detection, device identification, embedded mobile threat intelligence – our platform delivers flexible, real-time user screening that mitigates insurance companies’ risk.”
Webinar attendees will also learn:
- How technology trends are increasing cybercrime and data breach risk to insurers
- What you can do to minimize the security challenges of remote access by employees, agents, brokers and contractors using laptops, smartphones and tablets
- What solutions are available to protect broker/agent portals to meet Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act Safeguards Rule compliance
The one-hour webinar will take place on Thursday, May 2 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Interested parties can register at: http://www.insurancenetworking.com/web_seminars/-32062-1.html
