Internet Dogs and Digital Frankensteins: How Better ID can Slash Identity Fraud

About this event

It’s been 27 years since Pete Steiner published the New Yorker’s most reproduced cartoon of all time: A mutt on a computer commenting to a fellow hound, “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog.” Today, the cartoon is truer than ever – and if anything, things are actually getting worse. In 2020, “dogs on the internet” are being actively weaponized against us. Beyond traditional identity-focused attacks, we’re now seeing a new breed of beast (“Digital Frankensteins”) focused on creating synthetic identities by combining a mix of real and made-up identity data. As the United States shifts to social distancing because of the coronavirus, the challenges are taking on new, more complex dimensions. This session will discuss some of the latest attack trends, and also outline what government and industry should do about them.
