As innovations and technological advancements continuously proliferate, the number of fraudulent activities associated with these developments also significantly increases. One fast-growing problem is Synthetic Identity Fraud that created million dollar losses from the previous years. This type of fraud is costing millions of dollar losses because of the countless efforts and hours spent to track people who do not even exist. This involves using a combination of fake personal information, like a minor's Social Security number, to create fraudulent accounts. This type of fraudulent scheme can remain undetected for years, thus, creating more room for financial loss and reputational damages.
In this live webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group as they discuss in-depth the fundamentals as well as recent updates in Synthetic Identity Fraud. Speakers will help the audience identify practical tips and strategies to avoid potential risks and pitfalls.
Key topics include:
• Synthetic Identity Fraud: Framework
• Detection and Remediation
• Common Red Flags
• Risks Mitigation Strategies
• Addressing Implications
