The financial services sector and consumers are under attack from criminals around the world...and new strategies are required to better protect and maintain resilient computer networks.
LOUISVILLE, KY (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Networld Media Group has announced that Shawn Henry, president of CrowdStrike Services, will keynote the ATM & Mobile Innovation Summit, which is to be held on Sept. 10-12 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC.
Henry retired as FBI executive assistant director in 2012. During his career as a special agent, he served in three FBI field offices and at the bureau's headquarters.
Henry is credited with boosting the FBI's computer crime and cybersecurity investigative capabilities. He oversaw computer crime investigations spanning the globe, including denial-of-service attacks, bank and corporate breaches, and state-sponsored intrusions. He posted FBI cyber experts in police agencies around the world, including the Netherlands, Romania, Ukraine and Estonia.
During his keynote presentation on Sept. 12, Henry will shock attendees with the realities of today’s hackers and the vulnerabilities everyone in the banking and payments industries face. Following his speech, CrowdStrike’s crack team of security gurus will demonstrate how to protect today’s financial channels from compromise.
“The financial services sector and consumers are under attack from criminals around the world,” said Henry. “They aggressively and systematically seek personal and financial information for economic gain, and new strategies and processes are required to better protect and maintain resilient computer networks.”
The Summit is a partnership between Networld Media Group and the Electronic Funds Transfer Association (EFTA) and is sponsored by the ATM Industry Association (ATMIA) and MagTek.
The event will feature about 40 speakers, including representatives from organizations like PAI, Bitpay, RoboCoin, SECU of Maryland, TecBan, US Bank, MasterCard, Early Warning, Glenbrook, Citi, CU24, Bank of America, Federal Reserve Financial Services, and several government agencies, regulators and attorneys.
This Summit has been created specifically for financial institutions, payment companies, analyst and legal firms, processors, card networks, security firms, large retailers and ATM deployers. Registration is now open at atmandmobilesummit.com, and early-bird pricing is in effect until Friday, August 8th.
