Ai Video: Collaboration – the best way to fight fraud

24th May, 2019

 

Merchants, including airlines, need to take a collaborative route to combat fraudulent activities such as financial fraud, account takeovers etc.

Jan-Jaap Kramer, Founder and CEO of FraudGuard highlighted the same during an interaction with Christopher Staab, Managing Partner, Ai Conferences at the 13th edition of Airline & Travel Payments Summit (ATPS) in Brighton, UK, held earlier this month. 

“I believe in collaboration (for fighting fraud) at every level,” said Kramer. He indicated that fraud prevention as a discipline has come a long way, considering that a fraud analyst used to be isolated from other departments within an airline. And now various sectors have realized the significance of jointly fighting fraud since one fraudster can have access to a customer’s credentials. And these can be used across a variety of retail sites or in other ways to commit a fraudulent activity. “So it is imperative for merchants to cooperate and fight in unison,” said Kramer.

No point in just passing the fraud liability to another company or garnering data to enable real-time risk assessment but just for one’s own benefit. Rather wherever organizations can share best practices and even data they shouldn’t restrict and go for a join effort to fight this complex problem. This way merchants would be better aware of live and recent fraud transactions, chargeback monitoring, what to do when fraud is identified etc.
