Mountain View, CA, August 22, 2017Guardian Analytics, the market leader in behavioral analytics and machine learning solutions for preventing banking and enterprise B2B portal fraud, today announced that the company will be hosting an executive event featuring Forrester Research and Webster Bank. Attendees will learn about emerging trends in financial crime detection, customer best practices, tools and technology advances, and engage in a peer-based interactive discussion. Fraud operations, compliance, and information security leaders from nearly 100 banks have been invited to share their insights and perspectives.

Andras Cser, Principal Analyst in Security & Risk at Forrester Research, will present insights from a thought leadership  perspective and discuss emerging trends in financial crime. Kim Syrop, SVP of Fraud Loss & Management at Webster Bank — a leading regional bank with over $25 billion in assets  — will present a compelling case study on her team’s business and technology approach to financial fraud prevention, in addition to tangible results produced and lessons learned.

This Guardian Analytics interactive discussion will help financial institutions stay one step ahead of fraudsters by providing a forum to share insights and learn from experts and peers. Topics will include managing increased compliance obligation, the convergence of fraud, AML and Cyber, emerging technologies such as Blockchain, and leveraging powerful behavioral analytics technology to future-proof fraud and compliance strategy.

“It’s clear that financial fraud is simply evolving too fast for legacy approaches that rely on rules and annual model refreshes to keep pace,” said Webster Bank’s Syrop. “Cybercriminals are constantly innovating and becoming more sophisticated in attacking the vulnerabilities of our banking system. We, in the industry, need to collaborate more to thwart emerging fraud threats.”
The event will be held on Friday, September 29, 2017 at Webster Bank in New Britain, CT. For banking executives responsible for fraud operations, risk management, and BSA/AML officers who are interested in joining this invitation-only event, please go to this link to apply for consideration.
