I've spent most of my career dealing with risk, fraud, and chargebacks while also dabbling in other areas of payments. I saw the CPFPP exam as a way to legitimize the experience and skills I've accumulated through an organization I respect and am regularly involved with. I would recommend taking the certification exam to any fraud or payments professional, whether you are involved with the other area within your company or not. Understanding the way payment systems operate will help fraud professionals understand payments infrastructure, how they work, and where potential risks may arise. Payments professionals will learn the breadth and depth of fraud and where it could potentially be caught in their customer's lifecycles. If you are a wily veteran, you might gain some knowledge that you didn't already have as you study, or at least validate the knowledge you already possess.

I will certainly recommend anyone who is working or interested in working in payment and fraud prevention domain to take the certification. For veterans of the domain, the certification exam will certainly help to identify knowledge gaps as the industry is evolving rapidly, it is challenging to keep all of the moving pieces up to date. The certification of MRC will help to fulfill the gap. For the newbies of the domain, the certification will help them to ramp up domain expertise so that they can quickly catch up with the domain level of conversations and understand what is the right thing to do during their daily work. Most importantly for me, is that it creates an elite community and certified professional network I trust and able to work with outside of my organization, so that we can contribute more to the community and industry.
