Date & Time
Tuesday, September 17, 2019, 8:45 AM - 9:15 AM
Julie Conroy - Aite Group
Alissa Knight - Aite Group
In this fast-paced and engaging session, join Aite Group’s Fraud & AML research director Julie Conroy as she interviews Alissa Knight, a senior analyst in Aite Group’s Cybersecurity practice. Prior to Alissa’s current role, she was a white-hat hacker, testing mission-critical systems to find the holes before the bad guys. Alissa will give a firsthand glimpse of this lopsided game of chess in which organized crime rings intent on compromising the financial ecosystem get three moves for every one move the good guys get. Alissa will also share insights into things that financial services firms could do differently to thwart the bad guys. A can’t-miss portion of this discussion will be Alissa’s insights into the vulnerabilities of mobile banking apps, based on her own efforts at analyzing and decompiling them.
