SAN JOSE, CA – November 3, 2011 – ThreatMetrix™, the fastest growing provider of cloud-based fraud prevention solutions that do not require personally identifiable information (PII), today announced that Peter Liske, vice president of product management, will be participating in a November 8 webinar with the Merchant Risk Council (MRC) titled, “Top 5 Online Fraud Threats During Peak Season.”
Liske will provide an overview of the methods fraudsters use to attack merchants during peak holiday season, as well as why device identification is a critical first line of defense for merchants to reduce fraud.
“While merchants are preparing their online systems for maximum sales volume in anticipation of Cyber Monday, they must also have measures in place to prevent fraud,” said Liske. “The peak holiday sales season is notoriously known for an influx in activity by fraudsters, but through device identification, merchants can reduce their fraud losses and preserve their reputation as a secure shopping site.”
