FFIEC 2011 Quick Take- breaking down layered security

October 25, 2011 by Mike Byrnes     No Comments

A short while ago, I had the chance to speak with Ziff Davis on the FFIEC’s 2011 Guidance update for Internet banking. It was a great opportunity to not only get the word out, but I really enjoyed the challenge of trying to distill the guidance into 10 minutes or less — not an easy task for a guy with a lot of wind. :)

If you have a chance, take a listen to gain insight into the overarching theme of the new guidance and details on how to start building a layered security defense including “front-door” authentication techniques, in-session anomaly detection and innovative, yet simple-to-use approaches for security controls at transaction execution. As always, Entrust looks forward to serving as your trusted adviser for identity-based security needs and welcomes your input and questions as we collectively work to combat online fraud.

If you are looking for additional details, feel free to check out our FFIEC resource center or download our FFIEC compliance guide — an in-depth paper discussing the new  guidance as well as a range of information on authentication and fraud detection.
