  • Accelerating New Customer Acquisition with Digital Account Opening Best Practice
    Accelerating New Customer Acquisition with Digital Account Opening Best Practice
    OneSpan and Fintech Futures Recorded: Sep 19 2019 62 mins
    With the increase in pressure on Banks and FIs to secure transactions and customer data, the prevailing question becomes, how to ensure the account opening process is as seamless as possible.

    As demonstrated by the Aite Group statistics, high abandonment rates are abundant, lying between 65% and 90%, and it falls to the service providers to implement digital solutions to minimize friction and quickly acquire new customers.

    The combination of digital identity verification and e-signature technologies can be used to great effect to not only combat cart abandonment but to support new customer acquisition. And once the account opening process has been a success, retention becomes a much brighter proposition also.

    Banks must make sure the protection of customer data doesn’t come at the expense of the user experience and convenience. Achieving this is not without its challenges, however. And satisfying KYC and AML regulations is no mean feat, as increasing amounts of data means increasingly sophisticated and intelligent methods of protection, all of which needs to be dealt with invisibility without slowing or impeding the customer experience.

    Join this webinar from Fintech Futures, in association with OneSpan, to hear experts discuss:

    -Best practice principles around digital account opening

    -How to implement digital identity verification and e-signature solutions and secure customers data

    -How to ensure a consistent user experience throughout the digital customer journey

    -Navigating increasingly stringent KYC and AML rules and how to acquire new applicants quicker
  • The Underpinnings of Bad Bots and their Impact on Financial Services Customers
    The Underpinnings of Bad Bots and their Impact on Financial Services Customers
    Finovate and Cequence Recorded: Sep 19 2019 55 mins
    A regularly refreshed library of stolen user credentials, attack management toolkits and a delivery infrastructure that masks identity and location allow bad actors to launch large scale, automated attack campaigns against your public facing applications.

    By targeting the application APIs directly, as opposed to the web forms, attacks such as account takeovers and fake account creation can remain undetected by existing security solutions, quietly leading to fraud and reputational damage to the target organizations.

    In this webinar, Matt Keil, Director of Product Marketing, Cequence and Alissa Knight, Senior Analyst, Cyber Security, Aite Group as they discusses the exposure unprotected APIs represent and how these automated attacks take full advantage of Bulletproof Proxies, a rapidly growing class of infrastructure providers that have taken the concepts of anonymity and availability found in Bulletproof Hosting and extended them to the delivery infrastructure required to launch automated bot attacks. Topics to be covered will include:

    - Common automated attacks targeting financial services
    - Mobile application security risks hiding in plain sight
    - What a Bulletproof Proxy is and why it matters
    - How Bulletproof proxies came to be and their place in the cyber community
