“Financial services providers understand that good on-boarding is not only essential to the customer experience – it’s also a competitive advantage,” said David Barnhardt, EVP of Product, GIACT. “Every department within an organization – from risk management, data security, compliance and marketing – has a stake in how their business captures, validates and monitors their customers’ identities. If done correctly, businesses can make on-boarding fast and easy for customers while ensuring that identity validation is rigorous and done on an ongoing basis.”

Thoughtful approach to digital on-boarding

“Today’s identity-related crimes are dynamic and challenging,” said Al Pascual, senior vice president, research director and head of fraud & security, Javelin Strategy & Research. “For financial institutions, a knee-jerk reaction to avoid the financial impact of these crimes can lead to ever increasing layers of controls, complications, costs, and a negative experience for the customer. Taking a thoughtful approach to managing identity risk has become a critical aspect of maintaining profitable growth.”

As detailed in the white paper, GIACT’s recommendations for securing the on-boarding process, while keeping on-boarding friction at a minimum, include:

  • Securing real-time access to a broader range of identity-related data
  • Applying advanced analytics and machine learning
  • Providing quick and easy access to identity intelligence so that it can be used across relevant departments
  • Implementing a plan for action and digital vigilance
