To effectively perform real-time assessment on these aspects, many companies use the latest technological applications. Fraud detection systems use real-time transaction risk scoring algorithms to identify questionable purchases or payments. These systems consider transaction details, user profiles, behavioral biometrics, geolocation, IP/device metadata, account information, and more.

The advancement of artificial intelligence and machine learning are also aspects that have advanced our ability to perform real-time risk assessments. We discuss these concepts and how they are used. This course focuses on step one and two when performing a real-time fraud risk assessment. Those steps include:

  • Step One - Planning
  • Step Two - Identifying Risk

Future courses will cover the remaining steps in the process.

This course is a continuation in our series on Fraud Trends for the Future. Within this course we discuss the importance of performing a real-time risk assessment. We also discuss the many variables that are involved in this process and how they should be considered. Other courses in the series include:
