The litany of consumer PII made available to criminals in several years of massive data breaches fed the triplication of Existing Non-Card Account Fraud (ENCF) incidence in 2013, with checking and saving accounts compromised in the majority of these cases. Because numerous types and combinations of PII can be used to access retail bank accounts, FIs need to layer security features to address every scenario. It is no longer sufficient to focus on just a few salient threats. This year’s scorecard winners are prepared to confront the broadest array of fraud threats and to manage the damage when all defenses fail. Protecting the burgeoning mobile channel and leveraging it for security across all channels, and simple solutions that empower the consumer to assistance with mitigating a wide range of threats are emphasized.

Primary Questions:

  • What is the state of the current threat environment?
  • Which fraud solutions are best adapted to mitigating current threats?
  • Which FIs are best positioned to prevent, detect, and resolve today’s biggest fraud?
  • Which practices have been commonly adopted by FIs, and which should be adopted?
