In an interview at Information Security Media Group's recent New York City Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, where Donovan was a featured speaker, he discusses:

  • The sudden rise of new account fraud;
  • The limits of traditional multifactor authentication;
  • Why continuous authentication is more likely to uncover anomalous activity.

Prior to joining BioCatch, where he serves as vice president of sales for the Americas, Donovan spent 15 years building and scaling new products and markets in the cybersecurity industry. He helped grow VASCO into a leader in two-factor authentication and founded nJUVO, a security startup that protects business payments from fraud.
