Continuous authentication can play a key role in combating fraud, says John Buzzard, lead fraud and security analyst at Javelin Strategy & Research.

“If you are authenticating some physical documents that are being presented to you and then you are benchmarking and analyzing the customer’s digital behavior when they are with you in a digital banking transaction, that is pretty powerful in understanding some fascinating aspects of their profile,” Buzzard says.

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Buzzard also discusses:

  • The prevalence of identity fraud;
  • The use of behavioral biometrics in tackling ID document fraud;
  • Tools organizations can leverage to mitigate ID fraud.
