BehavioSec to Speak at FS-ISAC Fall Summit on Behavioral Biometrics

Co-Founder and Vice President, Olov Renberg, to Present on Continuous Authentication and Behavioral Biometrics’ Ability to Fight Fraud

SAN FRANCISCO, October 30, 2018 – BehavioSec, the first vendor to pioneer behavioral biometrics, will attend FS-ISAC Fall Summit on November 11-14, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois at the Sheraton Grand Chicago. FS-ISAC is an industry forum for collaboration on critical security threats facing the global financial services sector. Olov Renberg, BehavioSec’s Co-Founder and Vice President, will present on the topic, “The Front Line of the Fight Against Fraud: Behavioral Biometrics,” where he will discuss how financial service and technology companies have made measurable improvements in fraud prevention by using behavioral biometrics.

Account takeover fraud is among the top concerns for financial service organizations, but the ability to fight fraud has traditionally come at the expense of user experience. Today’s hyper-competitive market demands that firms ensure the ability to prevent fraud and cyber attacks without slowing down usability and functionality. Renberg’s session will draw on several use cases, including Goode Intelligence 2018 survey results and BehavioSec case studies, to show how behavioral biometrics is used to prevent account takeover, stop fraud and create a frictionless digital user experience.

“Presenting at FS-ISAC gives us the opportunity to show the success of behavioral biometrics in dramatically reducing fraud and theft committed by people and malware set on abusing accounts and credentials,” said Renberg. “Biometric authentication can greatly relieve the problems faced with consumer authentication including usability, security and compliance, making it a great benefit to fintech and financial services.”
