Account takeover, the Lord Voldemort of the digital world, sparks fear into the heart of business executives the moment it’s pronounced aloud.
Losing control over who is accessing your customer’s accounts can cause immense reputational damage, as well as steep losses. Data breaches are only making this problem bigger by sending out to the open millions of personal records every year.
This month NuData is celebrating Account Protection Month in conjunction with CNP. This awareness month is designed to help organizations tackle the root of account takeover before it actually becomes account takeover; finding the ATO seed before it grows roots in your environment. Pre-ATO symptoms are hard to see for many companies, and yet they are the key to stop ATO before it develops and turns into an unstoppable threat.
Visit our Account Protection Month page hosted by CNP, to download your account protection essentials. To have a live run-down about how to spot the early stages of ATO register for our webinar on May 29th, The Art of Stopping ATO Before it Starts. Ryan Wilk, VP of Delivery will explain the art of stopping ATO before it starts and give you some tips on things you can apply to your business from day one.
Organizations need to stop threats upstream, when they are outside of their environment, to make sure that the users that enter the environment are legitimate. With more visibility and understanding of your user’s online activity, you can make more accurate decisions and reduce false declines.
