iovation to Host Mobile Fraud Prevention Roundtable at MRC Prague

PORTLAND, OR and PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC--(Marketwired - Sep 30, 2015) - iovation, the digital reputation authority, today announced that it will host a roundtable discussion at the upcoming Merchant Risk Council (MRC) European Platinum Meeting in Prague, Czech Republic. Céline Vallet, iovation's European Client Group Manager, will lead the talk with retailers that will revolve around preventing mobile fraud while maintaining an optimal customer experience. The discussion will take place on October 1 from 2:50 to 3:35pm CEST.

"Stopping fraud isn't a matter of just putting up a wall. It's about separating out the bad actors while at the same time not giving those good customers a reason to not do business with you," said Vallet. "Mobile makes that balancing act even more complicated because you're dealing with both in app and mobile optimized browser purchases."

Specific topics that Vallet and attendees will cover include:

  • The differences in managing fraud risk for mobile web vs. mobile app
  • Understanding the right balance between customers' in-app mobile experiences and fraud controls
  • How device intelligence is being used to enhance the customer experience
  • Specific differences between Android and iOS device risk
  • Mobile wallet specific risk, due to access to multiple payment methods
  • How mobile biometrics can support merchants, the risks and opportunities
