We will explore the challenges we face as we attempt to address what was so eloquently depicted in this New Yorker comic, way back when the Internet WWW was this thing we all wanted to understand and many did not even know existed.


“The New Yorker” circa 1993


We will look at the issues of proofing and how can a financial institution feel confident when they may never meet their customer in a branch online. We will talk about synthetic identity and the tools available to protect against and we will address the issues surrounding account take over.


We hope you can make it to this event and feel free to spread the word.


This event is FREE for Business Members.
