InfoSight will address the concern of financial institutions regarding how to effectively educate their banking customers while revealing how to transform the compliance obligation from expenditure to revenue generator.

Tom Garcia, President and CEO of InfoSight Inc., a provider of Managed Security, IT Compliance and Vulnerability Management services for regulated industries, will address security awareness for banking customers at UMACHA’s Navigating Payments 2014 Conference on October 8th in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota.

In his presentation, Garcia will show attendees how to successfully implement, or enhance, a profitable customer security awareness program. Participants of the session will walk away with practical advice that they can implement immediately to reduce ACH/wire fraud and corporate account takeover incidents.

“In today's environment, information security awareness is everyone's responsibility,” said Tom Garcia CEO of InfoSight Inc. “We believe it's critical that bank employees and their customers have a better understanding of the threats to the security of their information and how to protect themselves.”

Because information security awareness training is a key defense against fraud and identity theft, providing education for retail and commercial customers on general information security practices is among the top agenda items for financial institutions as well as regulators. Garcia’s presentation, “Customer Security Awareness: A Key Defense against Risk and Fraud,” will take place Wednesday, October 8, at 4:00 pm.

When it comes to information security, people are as important as technology, policies, procedures, and guidelines. Providing education for retail and commercial customers on threats like phishing, social engineering and general information security practices an indispensable step towards properly managing those risks and reducing fraud.
