Defeating Attackers by Being Yourself: Join Webcast on What SANS Learned Putting Behavioral Biometrics to the Test

October 2, 2018

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 2, 2018--BehavioSec, the first vendor to pioneer behavioral biometrics, invites cybersecurity, risk management and business professionals to join a SANS Institute webcast defining behavioral biometrics and describing the technology’s ability to accelerate digital transformation with stronger, frictionless continuous authentication and anti-fraud controls. The free webcast, titled “ ,” will take place on Thursday, October 18 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Attendees can register for full details here.

During the webcast, Matt Bromiley, a SANS Certified Digital Forensics and Incident Response instructor, will provide an overview of behavioral biometrics definitions and concepts. He will describe key principles and features of the technology, which goes beyond traditional one-time authentication controls like tokens and password credentials, to continuously authenticate a user based on behavioral characteristics including typing patterns, touchscreen pressure and how users manipulate smartphones and other devices in the hand.

Bromiley will additionally detail the results of his independent, hands-on product review of the BehavioSec Behavioral Biometrics Platform, explaining for the audience how he put this software to the test while measuring BehavioSec’s ability to uncover bad actors and detect potentially suspect login attempts and transactions.

Organizations everywhere confront the user experience (UX) friction and poor security performance of traditional password-based authentication, prone to both time-consuming helpdesk resets and abuse by cybercriminals trafficking in continually compromised login credentials reused across multiple accounts. With financial services firms, retailers and other businesses demanding more intuitive, stronger controls to continuously authenticate users’ identities and actions, the webcast offers timely insight for leaders focused on driving greater adoption and trust around increasingly mobile and digital-focused business transformations.

“Behavioral biometrics is the rare cutting-edge technology already delivering substantial return-on-investment by helping large enterprises throttle down needless helpdesk calls and customer churn, while more accurately blocking and profiling suspect login activity and transactions for superior risk management,” added BehavioSec CEO Neil Costigan, who will join Bromiley in the webcast. “As pioneers in this field, we look to SANS’ independent expertise and extensive knowledge of current anti-fraud use cases and challenges as crucial feedback helping our technology drive results in the industry.”

Following the webcast, an archive replay will be available for registrants.
