GIACT’s report includes developments in account takeover and new account fraud; fraud in faster payments (P2P); fraud’s growing impact on consumers; as well as winning strategies to prevent identity-based fraud attacks.

“The combination of increasingly sophisticated fraud tactics coupled with more types of accounts and transactions moving online, many of them featuring weak authentication protections, has allowed fraud to flourish,” said Melissa Townsley-Solis, co-founder and CEO at GIACT. “Recent events, including the Covid-19 pandemic, have served to accelerate these trends and attacks. That’s why GIACT’s mission today is more important than ever – businesses need to act fast to secure their platforms, reduce fraud, and protect their customers.”
