2016 Digital Channel Threat Report - Derisking Convenience

Financial institutions (FIs) must support the channels and services that consumers demand in order to remain competitive. To that end, supporting account opening, delivering new transactional features, and facilitating payments through digital channels have become table stakes.

This white paper examines the interplay between the challenges and opportunities afforded by the growing breadth of digital channels offered by financial institutions. It further explores security solutions, background analytics and personnel for robust fraud protection.
