Mobile banking may be the single biggest innovation the global banking industry has seen. From smart phones to tablets and laptops, banking customers are pushing their institutions to roll out more mobile services.

But these same customers also represent one of the biggest threats to mobile banking. Having no control over what customers do on their mobile device - from the third-party apps they download to potentially dangerous links in e-mails and SMS text messages they click on - security leaders must find a delicate balance between growing their mobile channel while managing fraud risk.

And user behavior is only one threat vector. Mobile banking is also threatened by the proliferation of third-party apps, unsecured wireless networks and the evolution of mobile malware.

At the same time, the mobile landscape is evolving with new opportunities in mobile payments (including P2P) and authentication (such as biometrics).

How does the banking/security leader balance the mobile banking demand, threats and future business opportunities?

In this webinar, Matthew Speare of M&T Bank - a pioneer in mobile banking - will discuss how he achieves this delicate balance, offering insights on:

  • What to consider when rolling out a mobile strategy;
  • How to understand - and respond to - user behavior;
  • Future trends, including the question: Will U.S. regulators issue mobile guidance?

Joining Matt will be Sam Curry, CTO of RSA. He will offer bleeding-edge insight on:

  • The evolving payments landscape;
  • The facts on mobile malware such as Citadel;
  • Emerging mobile authentication options, including biometrics.
