Mountain View, CA, January 3, 2018  – Guardian Analytics, the market leader in real-time behavioral analytics and machine learning solutions for banking payment fraud detection and enterprise B2B portal fraud, today announced an upcoming executive webinar, How to fight financial crime in the world of Blockchain.”

Presented by Zilvinas Bareisis and Alenka Grealish, Senior Analysts at Celent, the leading research and advisory firm focused on Financial Services and Jesus Ortiz, VP of Product Development at Guardian Analytics.

“Enterprise blockchain has the potential to help reduce fraud in banking and commerce, but we will only be able to truly assess its impact on fraud when the deployments move beyond proof-of-concept stage. In the meantime, cryptocurrencies and public blockchains, like Bitcoin, create new avenues for money laundering and pose other clear risks,” said Bareisis. “It is critical to put in place the appropriate fraud detection technologies to counteract those threats.”

In this presentation, Bareisis and Grealish will provide a holistic perspective and share their latest research on this topic.
Jesus Ortiz, Vice President of Product Development at Guardian Analytics will explain how the only effective way to protect against emerging threats is to detect real-time anomalies in behaviors.  He will describe how Guardian Analytics’ machine learning and behavioral analytics patented technology can help you combat new threats created by the adoption of blockchains.

This Guardian Analytics webinar will be held on Thursday, January 18th at 11:00 a.m. PST and is targeted to professionals working for both financial institutions and companies in roles that include: heads of BSA, Controllers, Chief Financial Officers, and heads of Information Security.  To register, please go here.
