You Can’t Manage What You Can’t Measure

The latest payment fraud attacks use a combination of synthetic identity theft followed by a long period of authentic-looking activities before executing a fraudulent activity. Guardian Analytics’ Fraud Insights Network is reporting triple digit growth in fraud cases across financial institutions from 2016 through 2019. This equates to millions of dollars of illicit transactions detected by our machine learning & behavioral analytics risk engine and subsequently prevented with real-time interdiction.

  Presenter: Eric Tran-Le, Co-CEO & Vice President Product Management at Guardian Analytics

The Fed on Fraud: Payment Security Initiatives in 2020

As payment systems become increasingly digitized and complex, a host of dynamic security threats have surfaced. One lucrative financial scheme used by fraudsters is synthetic identity fraud, reportedly the fastest-growing type of financial crime in the U.S. that is estimated to have cost U.S. lenders $6 billion in 2016. Furthermore, the lack of an industry-adopted and consistent manner for categorizing payment fraud losses has created difficulties in capturing and reporting fraud trends in a timely manner.

PLEASE NOTE: The first half of this presentation will be delivered in the prior session. “You Can’t Manage What You Can’t Measure” starting at 8:40am, so please login then to see the entire presentation.

Fighting Authorized Payments Fraud

Fraud schemes continue to grow, with 78% of companies reporting they were targets of payments fraud in 2017, spread across 100% of the world's and nation's geographies.
