  • Description: As more and more data breaches hit the news, account takeover is a growing threat for online merchants. Even if fraudsters don’t get clear-text usernames - emails, passwords, other sensitive information can potentially be used for social engineering or other exploits. When it comes to account takeover, online merchants face the added challenge of recognizing a fraudster masquerading as a valued and trusted customer. Learn what geolocation and other transactional data can do to help you understand the context of an account takeover in order to identify suspicious activity and make better decisions while providing your good customers with the best experience possible.
