How are your good and bad users behaving during COVID?
Global
N/A
Overview

The new normal is drastically changing the way legitimate users behave online and how bad actors target their victims. As physical stores and bank branches close their doors temporarily, users move to the internet for goods, services, and entertainment. Similarly, bad actors craft attacks to mislead users and steal credentials for subsequent fraud. Behavioral analytics and passive biometrics expose how bad actors leverage user data in sophisticated attacks that often go unnoticed. This session will take you through the online traffic changes across industries, the attacks stemming from these changes, and how to prevent them.

Key Takeaways: 
How online user activity is changing across industries.
What COVID-related attacks are entering the scene.
How you can prevent today’s sophisticated attacks looking at their behavior

Magali Vandervorst, Manager, Area Marketing, NuData Security

Retail payment fraud: stopping the scammers

Retail payment fraud is on the rise around the world, and bad actors have been quick to leverage the global pandemic to scam people into sending them money. The amounts involved can be considerable, and the impact on victims life-changing and devastating.

  • Understand why retail payment fraud differs from card fraud – and why, therefore, a different approach is needed to tackle the issue
