Consumer and Workforce identities are under assault. Cybercrime and fraud are pervasive problems that have only escalated during the pandemic. Even as the number of online and mobile transactions increases, businesses, government agencies, and other organizations are actively searching for solutions to help them minimize fraud and other kinds of cybercrime.
As most regions of the world entered some degree of lockdown due to the pandemic, consumers are increasingly relying on digital services to order groceries, take out food, medicines, hardware, home goods, etc. online. Most workforce in organizations continues working from remote locations. Under these new circumstances, a robust digital identity solution is key to making their experiences efficient, pleasant, and secure. Digital identities have never been more important.
Security researchers have seen an explosion of COVID-related fraud schemes. Even prior to COVID incidents of Account Takeover (ATO) and Synthetic Account fraud were on the rise.
Join this webinar where we will:
- Discuss examples of these kinds of fraud and how they work
- Talk about how authentication mechanisms today can be augmented to prevent such fraud
- Show how proper identity vetting processes are essential for authentication and authorization by acquiring authoritative attributes
- Explain why this, in turn, serves to increase identity assurance levels, thereby improving security, privacy, and ultimately, user experiences as well
John Tolbert, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will explain why Covid-19 has led to an increase in ATOs and other kinds of fraud and how they work
He will be joined by Michael Engle, CSO at 1Kosmos who will discuss how a single solution can help verify identities, authenticate users and validate claims/credentials.

As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
