WHAT: In order to reach a highly mobile and diverse customer base, financial institutions are expanding their online assets at an accelerated pace. With websites and mobile apps proliferating, it is becoming increasingly difficult to monitor, manage and police them for the presence of malware and other threats. In this session, web security expert Elias Manousos will explain how attackers are exploiting financial services brands to distribute malware on their websites and seed mobile app stores with copycat apps. He will explain how this shift in the online threat-scape is putting both financial services organizations and their customers at risk of fraud and data threat. Mr. Manousos will also present findings from a survey of CISOs to illustrate what steps can be taken to monitor, detect and remediate threats and brand infringement.
