“Within the financial services space, it is very important to have the capability of identity proofing,” Buzzard says. “We have to look at behavioral patterns and device biometrics. … There are many opportunities there to be able to identify if you are dealing with a true customer or a criminal.”

  • Technologies that can play a critical role in fighting fraud.
