This biometrics technology involves, for example, "analyzing how one holds a particular device or how you are moving the mouse," Luhtanen explains. Artificial intelligence can help analyze previous behavior patterns to determine if the right person is involved in the payment, he adds.

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Luhtanen also discusses:

  • Top payments fraud trends;
  • Technical solutions for fighting payment fraud;
  • Authentication options.

Luhtanen, executive director of the U.S. Faster Payments Council, has extensive experience in the payments industry and has served on the council's board of directors; the Federal Reserve-sponsored Governance Framework Formation Team, which created the U.S. Faster Payments Council; and the Corporate Advisory Group for The Clearing House’s Real-Time Payments system.
