COVID-19’s impact is affecting nearly every part of our daily lives. As millions of consumers migrate their entire lives online – including greater reliance on online banking, digital transactions and e-commerce – cyber criminals are watching, waiting and following the money.
Rates of cyber crime and related fraud are skyrocketing. Cyber criminals pose a constant threat to consumers and the global financial system while also draining law enforcement resources. Sadly, fraudsters are now targeting the government backed stimulus programs to aid the millions now struggling financially due to the pandemic.

- Bolster cyber fraud defenses and strengthen KYC / CDD protocols
- Invest in innovative tools to enhance digital ID verification and authentication
- Utilize new data types for detecting fraud in order to provide greater consumer trust, security and assurance.
