How to Fight Account Takeover

  • Security, Identity Fraud

Account takeover, one of the most malicious results of identity theft, continues to become a serious problem for both customers and businesses. The increase in Internet-based commerce and mobile payments provides a treasure trove of valuable information for today’s high tech criminals to steal. Even worse, data stolen once can be used multiple times as criminals use stolen information on different merchant sites. Once taken over, an account becomes a bonanza for the thief. There is also an active black market where stolen data is bought and sold. While gold was once the most valuable form of currency, data is now the most precious commodity.

Insufficiently protected data is an invitation to financial disaster. Thanks to the large amount of data existing in our increasingly interconnected world, businesses aren’t safe.
