The Three Types of Lies: Lies, Damned Lies, and Caller ID

The Three Types of Lies: Lies, Damned Lies, and Caller ID Telephonic authentication as we know it today is dying, and enterprises can no longer trust Caller ID or Automatic Number Identification (ANI). Annual total fraud costs U.S. businesses $62 billion - due in part to phone hacking and caller ID spoofing, which are outpacing risk mitigation strategies.

Spoofed Caller ID and ANI undermine the reliability of multi-factor identity authentication, threatening the telephone channel as a secure place to conduct business, compromising downstream decision making and introducing new risks in applications like credit card activation.
