About this talk

Financial Institutions and Insurance companies are uniquely vulnerable to file-borne threats. Having to accept and process tens of thousands of files a day from multiple sources—emails, uploads to customer-facing online portals & apps, and downloads from the web—puts these entities at a unique risk. KYC, loan application documents, check image uploads, photo evidence and proof during the claims process - all files can be compromised with embedded, zero-day malware that is undetectable by detection-based and signature-based security solutions (and this doesn’t even include the massive volume of attachment-based phishing schemes that corporate office and billing receives). Join this informative webinar to learn: - The ways that attackers can implant malware into seemingly safe files commonly used during financial course of business, including zipped files, PDFs, Excel, and more - Dissection of a real attack on a financial instruction using files as the threat vector - The file security trends facing Financial Institutions & Insurance companies - How a new type of technology, Positive Selection, removes any and all hidden malware from files without interrupting business flow
