A white paper by the IDC Financial Insights team

Fraud solutions traditionally focus on stemming losses, but that's not enough in the age of digital transformation. A modern fraud strategy must support eCommerce businesses as they expand customer channels, adopt automated commerce models, and employ a multitude of new payment types.

To do this, eCommerce businesses need a fraud strategy that is scalable, secure, and innovative. An intersection of agile rules and advanced analytics lies at the heart of the strategy. How are you putting advanced fraud management strategies to work?

In this white paper, you’ll learn how to:

  • Choose a robust and agile fraud solution
  • Build fraud strategies with innovation as a central goal
  • Choose an implementation and strategy style
  • Set operational goals
  • Identify business and fraud prevention KPIs in the same context
  • Think agile while adapting to fraud risks
