Utilizing Post-Transaction Fraud Prevention in a Risk Solution

While it is natural for organizations to focus on the payment event when it comes to risk management it is also important to consider the benefits of continuing to monitor risk after the transaction has taken place. Fortunately for the fraudsters, however, the post-transaction activities most merchants do employ today are primarily centered on updating blacklists when fraud and chargebacks occur, but there can be quite a bit of time between the payment and associated chargeback events, allowing fraudsters to continue monetizing compromised card numbers or credentials.

what to expect

The Utilizing Post-Transaction Fraud Prevention in a Risk Solution white paper discusses several important considerations and techniques that can be applied or supplemented post-transaction. Post-transaction monitoring is a somewhat broad term that can be related to several specific techniques discussed in this white paper, including velocity checks, issuer alerts, link analysis, reporting, risk scoring, data sharing and negative lists. When it comes to repeat fraud, morphing fraud and other types of attacks or high risk patterns, a fraud prevention program can achieve notable uplift when adding post-transaction risk management measures.

There is an important distinction in using these tools with post-transaction capabiliites, allowing organizations to more proactively prevent fraud attacks rather than just contain them. For any organization, it is worth taking the time to consider how the use of post-transaction monitoring and reporting tools could augment and improve current risk management practices and strategies.
