Here’s what we’ll discuss:

It’s the ultimate question for merchants: How do we deliver an exceptional, low-friction customer experience while combating fraud?

Join Ekata, a Mastercard company, for our 23 February roundtable to learn about implementing fraud prevention strategies that enable your company to achieve that balance. Walk away with actionable advice for sending your good customers down a low-friction path while stopping fraudsters at the door by employing multi-layered, automated risk assessments at various points in the customer journey — from sign-up through transaction.

During this roundtable, we’ll discuss:

  • Which stages of the customer journey are targets for fraudsters (hint: all of them)
  • Why a holistic approach to fraud prevention is key
  • How pairing internal data with third-party data sources leads to more confident risk decisions at all stages of the buyer journey
  • Why automated processes are key to customized customer experiences — especially when it comes to implementing an SCA exemption strategy
