August has quickly approached for all of us, especially at
EVS. From the launch of the Premiere
Partnership Program to attending the MWAA
Annual Conference, EVS has been very active in keeping up with industry
trends while serving their clients with the fraud prevention
solutions they need. In a world that lives online and on their mobile
devices, Internet fraud has become an increasingly big issue. With massive
hackings and data breaches, identity verification and authentication have
become more important than ever. Mobile
banking and mobile
wallets have also added to the identity fraud that is leading consumers and
businesses down the road of destruction.
EVS President and CEO, Jeff Davis, has also created new blog this year to discuss current events
and trends that are affecting the industry. With 2012s end in sight, Jeff has
taken some time to reflect upon EVSs progress for the year.
