Payment fraud is a multi-billion dollar industry impacting merchants, cardholders, and financial institutions, and will result in over $400 billion in losses globally over the next decade. Historically, the industry has taken a reactive approach, waiting until fraudulent purchases take place, then attempting to limit losses, resulting in further reputational damages and financial losses. Recorded Future has unparalleled visibility into the complete payment fraud infrastructure, enabling clients to disrupt criminal activity by proactively detecting payment data being sold on the dark web, finding e-commerce sites infected with e-skimmers, and mapping thousands of the tester merchants used to validate cards before they’re used fraudulently.
Recorded Future’s Payment Fraud Intelligence enables payment fraud teams to proactively:
Pinpoint compromised common points of purchase (CPPs)
Enhance risk-exposure models and lower fraud potential
Improve average fraud rate metrics across an entire card portfolio
Detect attacker infrastructure being used to skim payment card data
With Recorded Future Payment Fraud Intelligence, the Card Fraud Prevention team at Swedbank is automatically alerted when its cards have been compromised and posted for sale on the dark web, enabling them to preemptively block and replace cards before fraud can occur.
“Recorded Future integrates with fraud detection systems to improve efficacy of detection algorithms and proactively scans the dark web to find compromised cards and reveal attacker infrastructure to identify active infections and full exposure periods. Now, financial institutions can develop and implement effective mitigation strategies to counter the effect of payment card compromises and subsequent fraud attacks before attacks can occur.” – Andrei Barysevich, Vice President, Fraud Solutions, Recorded Future
