The email address still reigns in our increasingly digital-first transactional society. From opening bank accounts and credit cards to establishing app and ecommerce profiles, the email address remains a central proxy for identity.
Since the pandemic, digital transactions have increased exponentially, along with malicious activity throughout the customer journey. Companies are challenged to identify and address potential fraud with each account origination, app download, transaction, or account change. With email intelligence data and the right workflows companies can combat these threats.
AtData, along with Spec, will show you how to easily and quickly use email data to seamlessly manage risk throughout the customer journey.
- Making your first-party digital data work for you
- Preventing fraud from initial engagement to loyal customer transactions
- Improving speed to implementation of fraud prevention strategies
- Best practices for a frictionless customer journey
As commerce and payments become increasingly more digital, unfortunately so does fraud. Most organizations feeling this pain are already taking precautions and many are rejecting way more legitimate buyers than they want, leaving a lot of money on the table.
To compete effectively, you need to explore how high decline rates compare with actual fraud rates and how they impact your digital goods and payments revenue and costs. If you see them taking percentage bites out of your customer acquisition rates, while adding exorbitant levels of chargeback expenses, then you need to fix that – quick.
Today, nSure.ai manages billions of transactions per year and, unlike any other provider, makes direct decisions on hundreds of millions of those specific high risk, high value transactions. In Q1 of 2022, we assessed that exact data which resulted in several key insights. Join us for this webinar where we’ll share the findings and conclusions from our sampling of more than 12 million digital goods and payments transactions.
- What decline rates are vs what they should be -- and to what extent that adversely affects digital goods and payments merchants
- How the true cost of fraud will rise in conjunction with the increase in digital goods transactions – and how you can prevent fraud from scaling
- Why it’s critical to ensure you have the right levers working together to improve both your financial position and customer service levels
Fraud is a business, and a successful one at that. In fact, fraudsters regularly brag on forums about how their tactics can earn them $3000 or more a week. With that much cash on the line, it would be irresponsible to not stay on top of how fraudsters are talking, behaving, and at the end of the day, attacking. Although merchants leverage machine learning, the most sophisticated tool we have for assessing fraud and risk, fraudsters keep iterating until they find a pattern that gets through these systems. So what can merchants do about this “cat and mouse” game? In this presentation we’ll break down fraudster behavior one step at a time, so you can understand what’s really behind the fraud you see every day.
- What kind of tools fraudsters are selling to make fraud easy and scalable
- The misconception that there are certain kinds of orders or segments that are ‘low risk’
- Best practices for how fraud teams can keep up with fraudsters’ evolving tools and methods
This presentation answers the question- what are the latest techniques you can apply to prevent fraud and ensure a frictionless journey for your customers?
Join Overstock as they demonstrate case examples of how monitoring consumer behavior in advance of the payment, capturing key data elements and leveraging ML models can detect bot attacks, account manipulation, and policy violations - enabling legitimate consumers to sail through the process and target proper risk controls to prevent and stop fraud.
Bots are everywhere, for better or worse. Though bots can be useful, fraudsters often use automated processes in a variety of attacks. Knowing how to mitigate bots is becoming increasingly important.
This MRC Virtual 2022 presentation highlights many of the most effective strategies, and explores how best to defend against them, demonstrating with real-world examples and advice from experts.
To effectively fight fraud, it’s critical to understand the economic and geographical factors that drive attacks. These include financial factors like currency exchange rates, wages, cost of labor, and more.
This informative MRC Virtual session explores the idea of an Attack Incentive Index, an industry-wide index that effectively combines relevant economic data with known attack patterns to provide a holistic insight into attacker motivation.
Fraudsters look for the easiest, most vulnerable parts of the transaction lifecycle to enter the customer journey.
Traditional verification steps, such as verifying micro-deposits, are not enough. Every participant in the transaction lifecycle – from merchant to payment processor to card issuer – must understand their vulnerability to account takeover fraud. All need a strategy for verifying identity that makes it much more difficult for fraudsters to use the identity data they obtain.
This presentation explores how transaction participants can create strategies to verify identities starting with account creation, and extending through checkout, payment, shipping, and account maintenance. It will also provide a merchant's perspective on effective pathways for safeguarding in-demand eCommerce options such as guest checkout.
The Merchant Risk Council (MRC), Cybersource, and Verifi present the results of the 2022 Global Fraud and Payments Survey in an educational report that conveys transparent and unbiased research. This report is based on a survey of MRC and non-MRC merchants from around the globe, who were asked about their eCommerce fraud and payments practices. The survey sample included a diverse mix of small businesses (SMBs), mid-market, and enterprise merchants, representing organizations based throughout the North American, European, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Latin American (LATAM) regions. The research was conducted in November and December of 2021.
The survey results provide the MRC merchant community with the latest industry fraud data and fraud management methods used by their peers, along with a robust set of performance benchmarks that members can use to help optimize their fraud management and prevention practices. In addition, the survey delves into today’s rapidly changing payments landscape to examine the range of different payment acceptance, management, and partnership practices merchants are deploying, globally and across key subsegments, as well as the reasons why they are adopting these payment strategies and tactics in the current commercial environment.
Martin Sweeney, CEO of Ravelin and Jason Paguandas, GM Merchant Security and Fraud at Fiserv, representing over 30 years of collective experience in the fraud and risk mitigation space, will discuss the economic slowdown’s impact on customer behavior, and what it means for the fraud ecosystem. Our experts will share fraud mitigation best practices and explain how automation can help protect businesses against fraud, increase customer trust, maximize profitability, and help merchants come out stronger as a result.
In this compelling conversation, the MRC partners with NORA (National Online Retailers Association), Australia for a conversation comparing the 2022 Global Payments & Fraud Survey (developed by Cybersource, Verifi, and MRC) to the soon-to-be-released AusPayNet 2022 Fraud Report.
Join Susan Brown of the MRC, Toby Evans of AusPayNet, Rachel Hall of Ticketmaster, and Ryan Amatoury of Woolworths for a deep dive into the data in these reports and the fraud metrics these subject matter experts expect to see in the coming year.
Bots are one of the main weapons of choice of bad actors, particularly for malicious activities such as account takeover fraud (ATO) and identity theft. Versatile and adaptable, bots can stage a wide range of malicious activities, ranging from credential stuffing attacks using information exposed in data leaks to the creation of multiple online identities.
For businesses, the combination of bot threats can pose serious problems - especially when it comes to customer satisfaction and company reputation.
This webinar will discuss how bots attack, the negative consequences they can have on an organization and how merchants can protect themselves.
1. How bots attack (and types of bots)
2. The cost of bot fraud
3. Examples of ATO bot attacks
4. How businesses can fight back
High-risk merchants categories such as CBD, crypto, gambling, sports betting, and adult content are facing growing scrutiny from their payments and banking partners due to compliance-related concerns.
To mitigate this scrutiny and potential areas of risk, merchants in these high-risk categories are using innovative risk mitigation tools and next-generation geolocation data and geofencing. These vital tools enable high-risk merchants to confidently grow their businesses and accept transactions – even as regulations and compliance requirements increase.
- The most effective tools to mitigate potential compliance risks and protect your organization
- How precise location intelligence can instill confidence for your payment partners when working with higher risk merchants

Better fraud prevention, all around.
Many organizations rely on two-factor authentication (2FA) using one‑time passcodes (OTPs) sent by Short Message Service (SMS) to authenticate banking and ecommerce transactions. 2FA performed this way can be fast and easy, but SMS wasn’t designed to be a security tool.
Learn how your organization can leverage voice biometrics to protect customers and your brand by building the highest levels of protection, trust and loyalty.
KYC has its roots in the early 2000s in an effort to make it much more difficult for criminals to launder money through banks, insurers, and adjacent institutions, as well as to stop terrorism funding. However this approach has been made more and more difficult to help online businesses verify fraudsters.
Combined with social media lookup and strict KYC checks, we'll be looking at how we can implement better restrictions of fraudsters and help AML efforts.
