cnp fraudAdvanced

the fraud practice provides the following Advanced training courses related to building and managing fraud teams and risk management strategies, as well as the use of advanced risk management techniques and platforms.

The following advanced courses require core knowledge or prior training on CNP channel payment risk management to understand the course material.

  • If you are doing business in the CNP channel than you are at risk for fraud. The following online training programs from The Fraud Practice provide practical knowledge on how to better manage fraud in a CNP business and how to effectively manage risk teams and resources. These programs focus on what goes into building a fraud mitigation program and managing a risk strategy, including things like building a fraud team and how to interact with them.
  • Two recent additions to The Fraud Practice's online training catalog are courses in our Management and Leadership series focused on building and managing fraud and security teams. Building and Managing High Performing Risk Teams discusses different methodologies and approaches for leading teams and directing resources. Following on with more information is the Managing Risk Teams to Deliver with Speed course, which focuses on how to organize, plan and allocate risk management teams and resources so they can quickly mobilize and remediate pressing threats.
  • Why do fraudsters steal? To make money. So when a fraudster is stealing from a merchant it is their intent to make money. They may do this by directly reselling the goods or services they got from a merchant or by tricking a merchant into refunding cash or other monetary devices (gift cards) for goods or services that were theirs to begin with. The fraudster is going to make themselves look and “feel” like they are someone else, and they are good at it!
  • Why is it important that you understand the intent of fraudster activities? The main reason is it helps you to detect patterns and develop fraud-prevention techniques to stop these types of fraudulent behaviors. In working in fraud prevention it is important to not only build strategies that can detect sophisticated fraud activity but that also need to be able to shut the door once you have spotted a fraud pattern. No fraud practitioner wants to be known as the one that could stop the most sophisticated fraudster, but let the dumb ones keep coming back for more. I say this because it is easy to focus so hard on one type of fraudster, one point of attack, that you lose sight of the bigger picture. Remember, fraud has always been around. The moment you successfully stop a fraudster’s attack they will be looking for a new attack. Likewise, if you don’t stop them, they will keep coming back until you do.

did you

why should you consider becoming a certified ecommerce executive?

Fraud is a part of doing business, but if you are doing business online, or via the telephone, the risk for fraud is exponentially higher; and stopping it is exponentially more difficult. Regardless if you are a small business owner with a staff that consists of yourself; or a senior executive for a large corporation with a dedicated staff to manage fraud; you need to understand how online payments work and the fraud exposure and risk your company will have to manage to maintain strong profits.

Doing business online today means you need to be prepared to navigate the eCommerce fraud landscape. The eCommerce fraud landscape can be difficult if you don’t have a good understanding of the underlying terminology, lingo and technology that is available. The eCommerce channel is still relatively young, and everyone from your peers to solution providers, from associations to the media will be trying to tell you they know how to prevent fraud in your business better than you do. The reality is, what you hear will typically only represent partial pictures. For example, most merchants just starting to do business online believe they will be protected from fraud by the tools offered from the card associations. The reality is, while these tools provide some protection they will not be enough to prevent fraud from occurring.
