ThreatMetrix™, the fastest-growing provider of integrated cybercrime prevention solutions, today announced that it is hosting a complimentary one-hour ThreatMetrix™ Cybercrime Education Series webinar on “Identity Spoofing from Malware: The Increasing Threat to Financial Institutions.” The webinar will take place at 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT, Wednesday, June 12.

“Threats from spoofed identities and fictitious account creation are an increasing problem for financial institutions,” said Andreas Baumhof, chief technology officer, ThreatMetrix. “An online account gives legitimate customers – and cybercriminals using false identities – entry into a financial institution’s front door. In this webinar, I’ll demonstrate how financial institutions can separate cybercriminals from legitimate customers in real-time using knowledge of an individual’s devices, preferences and previous online activity.”

The session is titled “Identity Spoofing from Malware: The Increasing Threat to Financial Institutions” and attendees will learn:

  • The latest trends in how customers interact with financial institutions via mobile and online
  • Threats from spoofed identities and malware techniques used by cybercriminals
  • Why a financial institution’s FFIEC compliance should include prevention of fraudulent identities
  • How a global network of visitor data can identify both legitimate visitors and cybercriminals
  • Innovative technologies to help reduce fictitious account registrations in real-time

The ThreatMetrix TrustDefender™ Cybercrime Protection Platform addresses FFIEC requirements to protect the integrity of online customer accounts and financial transactions by:

  • Addressing FFIEC layered security banking guidelines
  • Recognizing returning customers using complex device intelligence
  • Identifying high risk transactions through device and transaction anomalies
  • Protecting legitimate customers and transactions from targeted malware
  • Detecting compromised devices that represent risk to your assets
