Authentication: Going Beyond the UserJardine of Easy Solutions on Essentials for Fraud Prevention
Stronger authentication is just a piece of the fraud-prevention puzzle. Whether it's securing mobile payments or online banking transactions, banking institutions understand they can't solely rely on front-end authentication to verify any user.
More emphasis is being placed on back-end analytics and monitoring that remove the user from the authentication process, says Bryan Jardine of Easy Solutions. In an interview recorded at RSA Conference 2015, Jardine discusses:
- Why layered security that does not involve the user is increasingly critical;
- How mobile payments and e-commerce are opening the door for new ways of thinking about user and account authentication;
- How crafty schemes are getting around some of the most seemingly secure authentication methods and systems.
