PORTLAND, Ore. – August 13, 2013 – iovation, stopping Internet fraud and identifying good online customers with the world’s most comprehensive device reputation database, today announced that it and CEB TowerGroup will detail the unique security risks that accompany the rapid adoption of mobile banking in an upcoming webinar. Max Anhoury, iovation’s Vice President of Global Sales, and Jason Malo, Research Director at CEB TowerGroup, will host the webinar entitled “Mobile Banking Security: Risks and Consequences“ on Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
Recently, iovation documented a significant shift toward mobile device use for banking transactions. The company found that 20 percent of all online financial services transactions in July 2013 originated from a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet based on its analysis of 1.5 billion devices. This is up from 18 percent from between January and July of 2013 and 11 percent in 2012.
“Banks are aggressively innovating for their mobile apps right now, competing for market share and customer retention” said Anhoury. “With this rapid innovation, we found that financial institutions are not able to integrate security protocols as quickly as they would like since the 'old' security measures may not be well suited for the 'new' mobile world. This means that mobile transactions can be like the Wild West for fraudsters.”
The webinar will specifically address:
- The challenges financial institutions face in securing mobile service offerings
How the concept of an online identity has evolved, partially due to mobile devices
How compliance and Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) strategies will impact mobile banking
The role that “device” plays in defending against mobile risk
How upcoming mobile changes impact financial institutions
