About the free webinar series

Access to loyalty and travel accounts are hot commodities on the criminal underground. But so are packages of consumers’ PII that are used to create new accounts and construct synthetic identities. During this session, we’ll share the latest trends from criminal marketplaces and explain how stolen data makes its way from small circles of bad actors to the dark web – plus how to identify legitimate consumers interacting with your site vs. criminals leveraging stolen data.

Here's what you'll learn:

Dark web listings for loyalty and travel accounts: how much are they going for and how is that data being used?
The scale of leaked consumer PII that aids criminals committing fraud.
How and why malware – in particular malware-siphoned web session cookies – presents the riskiest threat for fraud teams right now.
Why recaptured darknet data is being used by fraud prevention teams to level the playing field.
