Information Security Media Group announces the launch of its latest webinar, "The Fraud Dilemma: How to Prioritize Anti-Fraud Investments," which will debut March 20, 2012 at 3:30 p.m. ET.

The 90-minute session is sponsored by ThreatMetrix™ and will feature insight from George Tubin, Founder, GT Advisors, as well as Alisdair Faulkner, Chief Products Officer, ThreatMetrix.

About the session: In light of increasingly sophisticated fraud techniques - everything from account takeover attempts to ATM skimming and increasingly sophisticated phishing attacks - financial institutions are under constant pressure to protect customer assets.

Further, embodied by the FFIEC Authentication Guidance, they face heightened regulatory pressure to assess risks, deploy layered security controls and to improve customer awareness of this ever-evolving threat landscape.

And a single misstep could result in a data breach that carries heavy financial, regulatory, customer, shareholder and reputational implications. So, how does an institution go about evaluating all of these options and deciding which fits its own risk profile best?

In this panel discussion, banking/fraud expert George Tubin will lead a lively discussion of today's top fraud threats and solutions. Among the topics to be tackled:

  • Regulatory Requirements - What are the basic expectations for assessing and mitigating fraud risks?
  • Investment Planning - What is your institution's fraud loss profile, and how can you best match mitigation approaches to your identified risks?
  • Selling the Solution - Once you've identified your anti-fraud solutions, how do you demonstrate value to stakeholders, and then win support for a prioritized investment plan?
