Fraud & Risk
Global Fraud Attack Index Q1 2016
Forter and PYMNTS.com partnered to develop a metric to track changes in the rate of fraud attempts on U.S. merchant websites over time. The report on this metric, which includes data through the third quarter of 2015, quantifies the potential cost of fraud attempts based on attack levels and the trend of these amounts. Also included are attacks by merchant segment/product category, fraud attacks by type, and the geographic origins of fraud attacks. The report concludes with a look at the methodology used to produce the index and accompanying analysis.
