Fraud & Risk
Global Fraud Attack Index Q2 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 fourth 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 and fraud attacks by type, with a particular focus on botnets. The report concludes with a detailed look at the methodology used to produce the index and accompanying analysis.
