Overview:

By now it’s clear that fraudsters migrate to the spaces where vulnerabilities are available for them to exploit. Now that credit cards are more secure than they’ve ever been, cybercriminals have set their sights on increasingly popular alternative payment methods (APMs). These APMs, such as mobile wallets, are expected to grow to $1.35 trillion from 2016 to 2017 which comes to a 32 percent increase. Another APM in the crosshairs is P2P payments, which will be used by nearly 100 million adults in the US this year, or roughly 38% of the US adult population.

It’s this surge in growth that has brought increased attention from both cybercriminals and the authorities charged with keeping these criminals at bay.

Join Dan Frechtling, CMO and CPO at G2 Web Services and Karen Webster, CEO of Market Platform Dynamics, on Thursday, April 6 at 1:00pm EST, to learn why APMs are at the top of the list for cybercriminals, why financial services/institutions should be worried and how these companies can protect themselves against this growing threat. We will:

  • Define and explore the alternative payment method landscape while examining the possible vulnerabilities for Financial Institutions/consumers and the opportunities for fraudsters
  • Help you learn the intricacies of the problem space by identifying the scams and introducing the “Payment Hustler”
  • Illustrate for you why FI’s should care about this threat and the preventative measures that can be taken to fend off any potential brand damage
