  • Why are Behavioral Biometrics So Popular Now?
    Why are Behavioral Biometrics So Popular Now? Andras Cser, Forrester Research and Uri Rivner, BioCatch Recorded: Jul 13 2017 60 mins
    The history of behavioral biometrics, the measurement of patterns relating to human activity, goes back to the 1860s, with the invention of the telegraph and the recognizable ways people would send dash and dot signals. Today’s behavioral biometrics, though, go way beyond, looking at multiple data and end point interactions to prevent new account fraud and provide continuous authentication after login. As more and more applications move online and consumers demand that the availability of functions in their digital worlds match their physical worlds, the popularity of behavioral biometrics has continued to grow. Join guest speaker Andras Cser from Forrester Research and Uri Rivner, Head of Cyber Strategy at BioCatch for an engaging discussion on what makes this modality so popular and effective in meeting today’s cybersecurity challenges.

    In addition, financial industry executives will gain key insights on:

    - How behavioral biometrics drive the 3 F’s – less fraud, less friction, more functionality - online

    - The ways that behavioral biometrics satisfy risk-based authentication requirements

    - How behavioral biometrics work with other technologies to provide strong authentication and protect against today’s cyberthreats like malware, social engineering and Remote Access Trojans.

    - Current trends in fraud and new areas for the use of behavioral biometrics

  • Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package.
    Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package. Boris Agranovich, Calvin Lee Recorded: Jun 27 2017 62 mins
    Join me and our guest, Calvin Lee, Operations Director at RISKID, for a lively discussion as we aim to dispel confusion surrounding many of the elements of the Operational Risk framework.


    Operational risk is perhaps the most significant risk organizations face. Virtually every major loss that has taken place during the past 30 years, from Enron, Worldcom and Baring's Bank to the unauthorized trading incident at Société Générale and the subprime credit crisis, has been driven by operational failures.

    Many financial institutions have spent millions of dollars trying to develop a robust framework for measuring and managing operational risk. Yet, in spite of this huge investment, for many firms developing a viable operational risk management (ORM) program remains an elusive goal.

    This webinar is designed for both current students of the “Mastering Operational Risk” - http://www.globalriskacademy.com/p/orm online course and for other busy risk professionals who are interested in studying both theoretical and practical application of ORM but don’t have time to attend in-person classes.

    The goal is three-fold:

    1. Existing students will be able to understand more on how to work with the RISKID tool and get an opportunity to ask questions about the subject matter.
    2. People who are planning to join the course will get some explanation in what is the course about, how the e-learning system works.

    During the webinar we will cover:

    How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?

    Who should attend.

    People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.

    Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.

    Why you should attend.


    - Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;

    - What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?

    - What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
    - What could you have done differently


    Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).

    Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.

    How to build exceptional stakeholder relationships and why doing this is critical in especially in turbulent times.
