Future-Proof Your Payments: How to Prepare for Tomorrow's Shopper

Join us for a webinar on January 22, 2020 at 8:00 AM PST (5:00 PM CET / 4:00 PM GMT)

Tristan Chiappini, Vice President and Head of Partnerships - Asia -- PPRO
Javier Vallaure, General Manager of LATAM -- PPRO

Commerce is moving from being channel-centric to being increasingly customer-centric. Customers expect to be able to browse and buy from anyone, anytime, from any device, with the payment method they prefer. So how do the best payment service providers and merchants make sure they are prepared? What do they need to know to make sure their businesses are future-proof?

This webinar will cover what is shaping the customer shopping trends of tomorrow, how to make sure PSPs and merchants have access to the right technology, are using the right infrastructure and partnerships, and are tuned in to customers' changing expectations and preferences (whomever your customer is).

You can also expect to hear real-life examples from the emerging markets everyone is interested in -- Latin America and Asia -- plus some practical advice and forward-thinking tips on how PSPs and merchants can deal with the constant evolution of commerce.

Undetected Fraud: Using Behavioral Data to Solve the ATO Problem for Online Retailers

Join us for a webinar on January 29, 2020 at 8:00 AM PST (5:00 PM CET / 4:00 PM GMT)

Alasdair Rambaud, Chief Executive Officer -- SecuredTouch
Ran Wasserman, Chief Technology Officer -- SecuredTouch

Payment, Risk, and Fraud teams are so overwhelmed with the perpetual onslaught of sophisticated fraud attacks, including attacks that manage to slip through completely undetected, that they have decided to swallow a certain amount of fraud losses. It is nothing new that account takeover (ATO) attacks comprise a large chunk of these losses.

In this webinar, SecuredTouch will present a (fairly) new technology that offers your teams an opportunity to finally get ahead: Behavioral Biometrics. SecuredTouch will show how processing behavioral data representing the physical interactions of a user and device can be used to detect account takeover and other sophisticated fraud attacks with higher accuracy.

Join Alasdair Rambaud, CEO, and Ran Wasserman, CTO, as SecuredTouch explores:

1. The fraud flow of account takeover in online retail
2. Behavioral footprints generated by fraudsters during an account takeover attack and how it is reflected in behavioral data
3. Using behavioral biometrics to detect account takeover at each stage of the fraud flow

Three main takeaways:

1. How behavioral data allows fraud teams to "see" user intent as indicators of fraud
2. The ROI of using behavioral biometrics to catch ATO in dollars and resources
3. Behavioral biometrics as a tool to fight other fraud use cases in eCommerce fraud

Join us for a webinar on February 5, 2020 at 10:00 AM PST (7:00 PM CET / 6:00 PM GMT)

Card testing attacks have increased dramatically towards small and medium-sized businesses, impacting payment operations including acceptance rates and the bottom line.

The Beginner's Guide to Building Your Own Machine Learning Model

Join us for a webinar on February 12, 2020 at 9:00 AM PST (6:00 PM CET / 5:00 PM GMT)

Yigit Yildirim, Director of Data Science -- Emailage

Experts are predicting that within the next 20 years, automation could replace up to 40% of the global workforce. The reality is that big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning are going to shape our future. Testing data is more accessible and affordable than ever, making now the best time to begin building your own machine learning models.

One of machine learning's biggest missteps is that algorithms do not know what to do when data is wildly anomalous and outside of the normal pattern. This can cause serious inaccuracies in fraud prevention and fraud detection strategies that rely solely on artificial intelligence.

This webinar covers common mistakes organizations make when starting out with machine learning. You will learn the best practices for building clean, standardized data inputs and understanding your algorithm and outputs. You will also get a behind the scenes look at how machine learning can maximize the accuracy and efficiency of your fraud management strategy.

Conversion Rate Optimization -- Adding Value Using a Simple Framework

Join us for a webinar on February 19, 2020 at 7:00 AM PST (4:00 PM CET / 3:00 PM GMT)

Mailie Shortill, Global Head of Sales Operations -- Ingenico ePayments
Panteha Pedram, Director of Risk -- Ingenico ePayments

Conversion in payments is more complicated than you may realize. In the payments world, conversion starts with a great checkout experience and the right payment methods, but that is only the first step. You also need to navigate fraud and security, as well as having the right authorization and acquiring strategies. For us, conversion does not count until funds arrive in the merchant's bank account.

This session introduces a simple payment conversion framework to help payments novices and professionals alike understand how to optimize business performance with payments -- and how to communicate this business value in simple terms to those around them in their business.
