Preventing Identity Fraud: The Road Ahead For Financial Services

Keith Swanson of SAS Institute on Techniques to Improve Detection

There’s no question: 2020 brought unanticipated changes and challenges for financial services. The notable surge in consumers’ use of websites and mobile apps for their banking transactions exposed critical gaps in our digital identity and authentication methods.

Keith Swanson of SAS Institute outlines techniques and technologies that can help financial services better detect and prevent digital identity fraud.

In this video interview with Anna Delaney of Information Security Media Group, Swanson discusses:

  • Why traditional detection methods are failing to identify new, harder-to-identify fraud schemes;
  • How financial services can make better use of their data to recognize and protect against identity fraud;
  • Best practices to develop strong anti-fraud capabilities and strategies.

Keith Swanson is the director of fraud, financial crimes and security intelligence for SAS Asia Pacific-Japan. He has worked with customers or directly for organizations across North America and Asia in both global and regional industries, including financial services, government and communications.
