About-Fraud Webinar Series

Why do still talk about ATO?

Technological advancements and information sharing among criminal networks have made hacking into bank accounts an increasingly straightforward task —  even for novice fraudsters.

Join Brett Johnson, Former US Most Wanted Cybercriminal turned Good Guy, and our anti-fraud experts for a deep-dive into Account-Takeovers (ATO). The panel will explore the tools and services that fraudsters use to overcome enterprise-grade ATO defenses in order to profit. We’ll also debate the most effective strategies for long-term protection of accounts while still maintaining a seamless user experience.

By the end of the session, you will know:

The top 4 motivating factors behind account takeover attacks

How account takeover attacks are carried out across various industries

How fraudsters target network and system admin accounts to launch attacks

The key to keeping all login endpoints safe and secure
