New Approaches to Fighting FraudMary Writz of ForgeRock on the Convergence of Identity and Fraud
The intersection of fraud and identity has never been more important, says Mary Writz, vice president of product management at ForgeRock. "The fraud team has a really great capacity to look at data, manage cases and think about new use cases," she says, "and the identity team has the ability to put them in predictive mode, preventive mode and real time. So them coming together is really powerful."
Writz also says it's essential to have a strategic goal across both domains and to consider how to handle budgets and metrics across the two teams.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Writz discusses:
- The blurring lines between fraud and identity;
- The challenges of fraud and identity coming together;
- Techniques to balance friction with risk when fighting fraud.
Writz is charged with delivering products and solutions that solve digital identity challenges. She has 19 years of experience in the field of cybersecurity. Prior to ForgeRock, she held product and leadership positions at Hewlett Packard and IBM in domains such as threat detection, machine learning, penetration testing, security intelligence, distributed denial of service, and targeted attack protection.
