Improving Fraud Detection Using Machine Learning Models

Swastik Bihani, VP of Product Management & Head of India Operations - Simility

Old-school fraud detection techniques, typically rules-based, are not enough to fend off fraudsters anymore. Fraudsters are investing in machine learning-based technology as they plot new attacks. Companies need to fight fire with fire. Machine learning models works on large datasets and detect patterns that humans cannot. The models continually learn and adapt. In this webinar, Simility will share insights about machine learning and how it can be used to simplify fraud detection, covering:

- How machine learning is transforming fraud detection
- Limitations of machine learning techniques -- e.g. unsupervised learning
- Emerging approaches such as adaptive data ingestion and dynamic data ontology
- Building a machine learning-based fraud-fighting strategy

Improving Authorization Management for Transactions with Visa's Stored Credential (Card-on-file) Transaction Framework and Visa's Requirements for Authorization on Purchase Returns

Join us for a webinar on 30 August, 2017 at 11:00 AM PST (8:00 PM CET)

Amitabh Awasthi, Senior Director - Visa
Arturo Martinez, Senior Director - Visa

Visa presents highlights and shares insights on two important upcoming initiatives:

Stored Credential Transaction Framework Requirements

With the growth in digital commerce, instances in which a transaction is initiated with a stored credential based on a cardholder's consent for future use have increased to significant levels. Visa announced requirements for its Stored Credential Transaction framework, including mandates to identify initial storage and subsequent use of payment credentials, which are effective October 2017.

Benefits: Having stored credential transactions specifically identified allows for differentiated treatment through the authorization approval process. The results are:

-Greater visibility of transaction risk levels for issuers
-Higher authorization approval rates and completed sales
-Enhanced cardholder experience
-Allows participation in Real Time Visa Account Updater Service -- this service enables merchants to receive updated card information as part of the authorization message in real time, instead of the existing offline batch process (availability varies by region)

Authorizations on Purchase Return Messages

Today, cardholders have real-time access to their online banking information through smartphones and other devices. Consumers are more aware than ever of how quickly purchase information is updated to their accounts. At the same time, they are becoming more aware that a similar flow of information does not exist on purchase returns. To address this discrepancy in the flow of information for returns, Visa is enabling real-time information about returns, which will originate from the merchant and be sent to the cardholder's bank through an authorization message.

Beginning spring 2018, Visa will require acquirers and merchants to receive and pass return authorization messages for both card-present and card-not-present transactions.

Join this webinar to learn firsthand about these important initiatives and the benefits they will offer.
