Transforming Fraud Prevention with Trusted Identities

  • Eric Choi, Chief Marketing Officer -- Pipl

Identity underlies every transaction. With rising levels of fraud, false declines, and chargebacks, it's time to rethink the concept of "identity" within the context of digital commerce. Pipl and our guest fraud expert will share why the traditional concept of identity is failing merchants, payment processors, and ecommerce customers alike—and how it should change. We'll introduce the new paradigm of trusted identity, describe what comprises trusted identities, and provide real-life examples of how trusted identities are already being used to prevent fraud, combat chargeback and friendly fraud, and extend trust into the ecommerce lifecycle.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the importance of deep connections between identity data fragments
  • Identify trust signals and be able to recognize a trusted identity
  • See how the concept of trusted identity is being applied across manual review, chargebacks, friendly fraud, and third-party fraud

How To Turn Digital Identity From a Business Inhibitor to a Business Enabler

Join us on Wednesday, March 2, 2022 at 11:00 Singapore (March 1 19:00 Seattle / March 2 03:00 Dublin / 04:00 Berlin / 14:00 Melbourne)

  • Joe Clegg, General Manager APAC -- Callsign

For many merchant businesses, customers may be noting more IP address and tokenized PAN. The trouble is, these details can be faked, stolen, or spoofed. And consequently, many legitimate payments attempts are incorrectly labelled as fraudulent.

This is more than just an inconvenience. It causes customers to be unable to access the goods they want, and merchants lose out on a sale. So, what is the alternative?

We will be answering just that in this special panel session. Join us as we look at how you can get to know your customers to improve sales and reduce fraud. To help delve into this challenge, we’ll be asking what we can learn from financial institutions who have begun to see the business benefits that digital identity solutions offer around greater digital experiences.

Learning objectives:

  • Insight into existing fraud challenges
  • The key questions that should be considered when verifying identity
  • The benefits to UX and privacy that digital identity can bring to the business
