Risk & Mobile

  • TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 17, 2018 TIME: 14:30-15:30 LOCATION: CHIEMSEE


Mobile multifactor authentication (MFA) holds tremendous promise for solving urgent security and regulatory problems. It can deliver the "strong customer authentication" (SCA) required by PSD2 and other standards, and it can remove the fear of account takeover that hovers over all of us, courtesy of the 5 billion credentials accessible to hackers and fraudsters on the Dark Web. It can also drive outstanding user experiences.

But it's often missing the digital glue that can make it truly adaptive, enjoyable and secure for eternal consumers using your web sites and applications. In this session we'll talk about the role of "device risk" as that glue, and how it can connect the competing needs for outstanding user experience, sensitivity to risk, and privacy. We'll discuss the role of risk insight in delivering SCA via mobile MFA, and how to leverage insight your company may already possess (though it probably lives in another team).

Key Takeaways:

  • Replace cumbersome passwords with mobile technologies that solve SCA requirements
  • Engage your customers with outstanding (rather than awkward) authentication experiences
  • Make "device risk" the driver of your customer's authentication experiences
  • Leverage critical risk insight your company may already possess
