Tis the Season... the Season of Taking Back

Join us for a webinar on October 30, 2019 at 7:00 AM PDT (3:00 PM CET / 2:00 PM GMT)

Michael Mallon, Global Product Director -- Accertify Inc.
Jen Lichner, Director of Dispute Management Operations -- Accertify Inc.

As the holiday season draws nearer and the reality of holiday spending begins to take hold at the consumer level, merchants are actively planning for the increase in spending, fraud, and chargebacks. In many cases, we will see the holiday spend turn into buyer's remorse as we move into the new year. Buyer's remorse refers to what the industry calls "friendly fraud" and occurs when a consumer makes an online shopping purchase with their own credit card, and then requests a chargeback from the issuing bank after receiving the purchased goods or services. Once approved, the chargeback cancels the financial transaction, and the consumer receives a refund of the money they spent.

Effectively fighting chargebacks requires an understanding of the regulations, the ability to gather the necessary support quickly, and of course the resourcing to handle the increased volume from holiday spend. If the resources to dispute a chargeback are lacking, then the merchant risks leaving income on the floor simply because of poor planning for the upcoming onslaught. There are many strategies a merchant may employ, such as purposely working only a portion of the volume, increasing headcount through temporary staffing or overtime, or possibly outsourcing the process to a partner who focuses on managing chargebacks on your behalf.

During this MRC Solution Spotlight webinar, we will explore some of the many means to prepare and then implement a strategy to help with the season of chargebacks. We will be discussing things like workflow prioritization, technology assists, staffing impact, and of course how to ensure you maximize your approach so that you recapture as much of the income you as a merchant are due.

How to Fight Identity Fraud by Going Providerless

Join us for a webinar on November 20, 2019 at 11:00 AM PST (8:00 PM CET / 7:00 PM GMT)

Shmuli Goldberg, Chief Marketing Officer -- Identiq
Uri Arad, Co-Founder and Vice President of Product -- Identiq

The most challenging risk to control is when you see something for the first time -- be it a customer, an email address, or a credit card.

However, while these customers and their assets are new to you, these good users are probably well known elsewhere. The leading online companies recognised this a while ago, and have been working together rather than having to rely on third-party data providers.

In this Solution Spotlight webinar, Identiq will be discussing how providerless fraud prevention can enable you to:

-Start collaborating with your peers
-Get fresh, holistic information to stop fraud
-Streamline the experience for good users
-Stop sharing or exposing sensitive user data with anyone
-Verify data like funding source ownership that you simply could not before

Intrigued? Join on November 20 to find out what going providerless can do for you and your business.

Why Fraudsters Love Your Contact Center's Authentication, and Customers Hate It

Join us for a webinar on December 4, 2019 at 11:00 AM PST (8:00 PM CET / 7:00 PM GMT)

Lance Hood, Senior Director of Product Marketing -- Neustar

As chip credit cards make retail fraud more difficult, criminals are increasing their attacks on call centers. Meanwhile, contact centers employing knowledge-based authentication make it easier than ever for criminals to socially engineer call center agents and take over customer accounts. Asking more challenge questions is just asking for trouble.

Instead of callers' personal information -- which is freely available on the dark web -- contact center leaders need an "unhackable" approach to identify and authenticate callers. Forward-thinking contact centers are finding success using authoritative data that link users' accounts with their calling devices. The result is better protection for customer accounts and improved customer experience.

Attend this Solution Spotlight webinar to learn:

1. The latest methods fraudsters are using to attack contact centers

2. Why existing call center authentication practices may be problematic for security and the customer experience

3. Why ownership-factor authentication has proven to be a more secure and customer-centric model for call center fraud prevention
