SAN FRANCISCO, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Guardian Analytics, the market leader in behavior-based fraud prevention solutions, is hosting its inaugural customer conference, "Strength in Numbers," June 13 to 15 at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. The event is designed to promote knowledge sharing among users of Guardian Analytics' flagship fraud prevention solution, FraudMAP, and industry experts to help them implement  more efficient and effective fraud prevention programs.

"As banking fraud continues to evolve and new threats emerge due to the expansion of ACH transactions and mobile banking, our best defense lies in learning from one another," said Terry Austin, CEO, Guardian Analytics. "With a community of fraud prevention professionals from a variety of backgrounds under one roof, we have a unique opportunity to deeply examine best practices throughout the entire fraud lifecycle and spark and nurture ongoing dialog."

Guardian Analytics has recruited a diverse set of influential speakers from government and banking industry agencies including the American Bankers Association, the Secret Service, FBI and FS-ISAC.  Financial institutions will also share their experiences and best practices in fraud prevention, and industry analyst July Conroy McNelley from Aite Group will provide insight into layered security strategies. In the keynote session, John Sileo, identity theft expert and award-winning author of Stolen Lives, will reveal lessons learned after his company experienced devastating financial losses due to a data breach.

Conference sessions will examine technology and operational solutions from initial account compromise to investigating fraud and working with law enforcement. Attendees will also have access to an exclusive look at Guardian Analytics' product and services roadmap, new research with a fresh perspective on the latest fraud tactics employed by cybercriminals, and discussions on how cross-institutional collaboration can advance the fight against fraud.
