BehavioSec to Present at Money20/20 Europe

CEO Neil Costigan to Join Panel ‘The Changing Nature of Attacks and
Attackers’ to Discuss the Importance of Behavioral Biometrics in the New
Threat Landscape

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#Biometricslt;/agt;–BehavioSec, the first vendor to pioneer behavioral biometrics, is
attending Money20/20
on June 3-5, 2019 in Amsterdam, Netherlands at the
Amsterdam RAI. Money20/20 focuses on the mission of creating a simpler,
fairer, faster and more inclusive financial system for individuals,
businesses and society as a whole, bringing together more than 350
speakers to deliver the next frontier of Financial Services. BehavioSec
CEO Neil Costigan
will join the panel discussion, “The Changing
Nature of Attacks and Attackers,”
where he will discuss
cybersecurity and risk management in an age where online commerce and
trust are threatened by cybercrime threats continually bypassing
traditional password authentication and anti-fraud measures.

Money20/20 attendees can visit BehavioSec at booth H92 throughout
the event. BehavioSec will meet with customers and industry partners,
brief media and analysts and present demos of the company’s Behavioral
Biometrics Software Platform
. Already in use with some of the
biggest global brands in FinTech and financial services, BehavioSec’s
software provides continuous online authentication of account holders by
analyzing their unique physical behaviors, like typing patterns, cursor
movements and touchscreen inputs.

“Traditional, one-time authentication measures like thumbprints and
passwords can no longer protect and enable digital transformation in the
financial services sector,” said Costigan. “With today’s constantly
evolving attacks bypassing even once reliable multi-factor
authentication methods, financial service organizations must find new
ways to prevent fraud and cyber attacks without slowing down usability
and functionality. Presenting at Money20/20 gives us the opportunity to
show the success of behavioral biometrics in combating account takeover
fraud in this new threat landscape.”
