How can your business transact with customers across online and mobile channels while avoiding higher fraud risks? This report highlights a shift toward networked, cross-organizational and cross-industry fraud, and gives insight into the evolution of bot attacks targeting new accounts in media and e-commerce.
Key findings in the LexisNexis Risk Solutions Cybercrime Report include:
- Networked Cybercrime - The new report details an example of how the Digital Identity Network tracked one fraudster across three industries and six different organizations attempting to create new accounts, initiate repeated login attempts and make fraudulent payments in an effort to monetize stolen credentials, launder money and abuse bonus incentives.
- Mobile App Registration – While mobile continues to prove more secure than desktop, fraudsters are seeing new mobile account creations and app registrations as opportunities to intercept one-time passcodes to fraudulently register mobile apps. This provides fraudsters with a wealth of personal information and bank account access.
- Bot Attacks – The Digital Identity Network revealed a number of bonus abuse attempts where fraudsters attempted to sign up for a number of new accounts in order to capitalize on free trials and streaming bonuses to sell for profit.
