About The Live Discussion: 

With more than 700 million records breached in 2015, fraudsters continue to find new ways to gain access to companies’ and people’s financial and personal information.

Simply put: Criminals want money that merchants have at their disposal and it’s become surprisingly easy for them to.

Today, fraudsters make use of tools, data and opportunity when making an attack.

Fraudsters, using email verification and proxy detection services, for example, have successfully found a way to:

  • Compromise more than 630 million credit cards;
  • Leak 1.2 billion record onto the black market; and
  • Compromise roughly two-thirds of all credit cards

With three out of four tablet owners making weekly purchases using their devices, fraudster have ample opportunities to try and steal people’s money.

On Wednesday, July 20 at 1:00 PM (EST), MPD CEO Karen Webster will be joined by Don Bush, VP of Marketing at Kount, for a live digital discussion where they will examine how a fraudster uses tools, data and opportunity in an attack.

Featured PYMNTS Study:

More than 63 percent of merchant service providers (MSPs) want to overhaul their core payment processing systems so they can up their value-added services (VAS) game. It’s tough, though, since many of these systems date back to the pre-digital era. In the January 2020 Optimizing Merchant Services Playbook, PYMNTS unpacks what 200 MSPs say is key to delivering the VAS agenda that is critical to their success.
