Biometrics in the Branches: The New Weapon Against Fraud
Tom Field – SVP – Editorial, ISMG / Jim Harris – Executive Vice President of Sales, Panini
Pandemic stress. Economic turmoil. High unemployment. These are key factors that influence fraud rates, and banking institutions are already reporting upticks both in new account fraud and account takeover.
Traditionally, institutions have relied on physical documents (what you have) and challenge questions, passwords or PINs (what you know) for identity verification and authentication. But as consumers grow more comfortable with the convenience and security of biometric authentication, banks increasingly are adopting biometrics (what you are) as a new weapon against fraud.
Please join ISMG’s Tom Field for an exclusive roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on current fraud trends, gaps or limits in authentication processes, as well as the maturity and role of biometrics technology.
Discussion topics will include:
- Where are the gaps in current methods used to verify new bank customers and authenticate returning customers?
- What is the maturity of biometrics authentication, and how is it now being used in banks?
- What is the readiness of banks – and consumers – to accept these emerging biometric solutions?
Joining Tom to provide expert insight and case studies is Jim Harris, Executive Vice President of Sales at Panini.
