Fighting Fraud with Cassandra

We are very happy to announce our first Lisbon MeetUp!

There will be food and drinks (and giveaways) sponsored by DataStax so make sure you come straight from work!

Spacial thanks to Diogo Ferreira, Luís Veiga and Sérgio Esteves from Técnico Lisboa for all their help making this possible.


Speaker: Diogo Ferreira

Bio: Diogo Ferreira is a Product Architect and Team Leader at Feedzai. Diogo's ninja skills include high performance computing, designing systems that scale, and the Java/Scala platform. Diogo is also known by his contributions to open-source world in the CyanogenMod and Compiz projects.

Abstract: Payment Fraud and data breaches are on a rise. Every year millions of credit-card numbers are compromised. In the recent Target breach between 70 and 110 million people saw their information stolen and purchases being made in their name. In this talk we will discuss how at Feedzai we leverage Machine Learning and Big-Data Techniques to make commerce safe. In particular, we'll share our experience on leveraging Cassandra as a fast real-time NoSQL database, enabling us to score thousands of transactions per second with extremely short latencies.
