The scale of Internet fraud is sizeable and growing by every measure. According to CyberSource's 11th Annual Fraud Report (352 U.S. and Canadian merchants), Internet retailers lost more than $3.3 billion to fraud last year and Javelin Strategy & Research 2009 Identity Fraud Survey Report stated that more than $48 billion was lost as a result of identity fraud. In fact, the numbers associated with these and other fraud reports are probably under reported as most merchants and the industry are reluctant to report the true extent of their losses due to fraud. Learn how botnet detection, device fingerprinting, protocol and network intelligence are being used to differentiate between valuable customers and fraudsters in real time.
