The event will take place on Thursday, June 7 from 9:15 – 10:15 a.m. EST.

A presentation titled, “Even Riskier Business: Tales from Across the Globe,” will feature insights from Alisdair Faulkner, chief products officer, ThreatMetrix, and Don McNelley, director, product management: risk, payments and compliance, Xoom.

During this presentation, Faulkner and McNelley will discuss:

• Evolution of risk in ACH

• Risk of using ACH to fund global remittances

• The fundamentals of person-to-person payment transaction flow that leverages the ACH Network and the important functions of account funding, account verification and overall risk management.

• Fraud mitigation tools and strategies, including the ThreatMetrix™ Cybercrime Defender Platform

Businesses need effective fraud and malware prevention that saves money, protects their brand and customers while providing a competitive advantage.”
