Fraud & Risk
Fraud in Gaming -- Disrupting the Bad in the Good
At MRC Vegas 2018, Sony Interactive Entertainment (PlayStation) discussed several fraud models impacting the gaming industry. Some of these, such as account takeover, are faced by other merchants, while others, like game sharing and virtual currency fraud, are unique to the sector. After exploring various attack models and the virtual economy, Sony shared the prism through which they developed their fraud strategy, such as the role of product mix on risk mitigation. The presentation closes with a comparison of force controls and velocity controls on fraud, plus recommendations for developing strategies for different attack types.
