Consumers are going online to conduct business more than ever before. And when it comes to opening credit card accounts, checking/savings accounts and retirement accounts, consumers increasingly prefer digital channels to get the job done, giving them the instant gratification they have become accustomed to in our increasingly connected world, without adding undue friction.
Unfortunately, sophisticated fraudsters are always on the lookout for a new weak spot to help them steal from consumers and businesses alike. While widespread web adoption drives down acquisition costs, it’s also largely an anonymous interaction, creating a critical vulnerability for fraud.
