Web Fraud Prevention, Identity Verification & Authentication Guide 2018-2019

Report, published: December 2018

The Web Fraud Prevention, Identity Verification & Authentication Guide 2018-2019 is now live, offering a complete overview of the latest trends into digital onboarding and fraud mitigation

Customer experience and the conflict between offering a frictionless customer service to good clients while managing risk and blocking the bad guys are some themes that are emerging from acquirers, card schemes, regulators, service providers, merchants, as well as auditors and journalists alike.

The Web Fraud Prevention, Identity Verification & Authentication Guide 2018-2019 covers some of the security challenges encountered in the ecommerce and banking, and financial services ecosystems. What is more, it provides payment and fraud and risk management professionals with a series of insightful perspectives on key aspects, such as fraud management, identity verification, online authentication, and regulation.

As new types of fraud are growing exponentially (account opening and account takeover), identifying fraudulent behaviour has become an important step in authentication. As such, companies are starting to frequently use various data sources and apply concepts of machine learning for accurate insights that drive effective fraud management. Another topic covered in the guide is the way in which existing technologies (such as biometrics, for instance) can improve the customer experience while balancing security within the onboarding process.

Moreover, notions of consent under PSD2 and GDPR are worth following in the fight against fraud, as well as how cryptocurrency exchange platforms and custodian wallet providers are put into the scope of new regulations and directives (AMLD5).
