Is Your Customer Authentication Strategy Complete? The Case for Digital Identity

Digital identity is becoming increasingly important to business and customer strategy. Join us to learn more about digital identity and how it can improve customer authentication.


About the webinar

The digitalization of banking has created convenience for customers, but a fraudulent headache for institutions. Fraud management systems that focus solely on traditional transaction monitoring aren’t enough.

Today, organizations must have solutions that can effectively gather device data to form the digital identity of the customer – to gain that 360-degree view and drive exceptional customer experiences.

In this session, we’ll explore why identifying good customers is critical to an organization’s success, business growth and ability to capture the bad guys.

What you'll learn:

  • What’s a digital identity and why it’s key to your customer authentication strategy.
  • How to find balance between fraud detection and the customer experience.
  • Why poor data management is leading to increased fraudulent activity.
