Silver Tail Systems to Present at Merchant Risk Council Fall Platinum Meeting

Laura Mather, Ph.D., to Discuss the Dangers of Account Hijacking and Man-in-the-Middle Attacks

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) -

Laura Mather, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Silver Tail Systems, will discuss "Account Hijacking: Going Beyond Transactional Detection" at the Merchant Risk Council (MRC) Fall Platinum Meeting.

Thus far, 2011 has shown that cybercriminals are perpetrating more Man-in-the-Middle attacks against e-commerce websites than ever before. It is hypothesized that these attacks are more prolific due to widespread consumer machine malware infections. These Man-in-the-Middle attacks can be especially damaging, as criminals are able to use consumer accounts to purchase goods -- effectively stealing credit cards by stealing account passwords. This session will provide an overview of the latest attacks that have been perpetrated against e-commerce websites and highlight the latest cybercrime detection techniques to prevent online fraud.
