Identity theft increases application and account takeover fraud

Data breaches have given criminals access to more personal information than ever before, and with this, they can commit application fraud or takeover the accounts of legitimate customers with ease. In today’s digital economy, you must understand who your customers are, when they open accounts and be able to authenticate them at every subsequent interaction in order to prevent identity fraud and ensure identity authentication.
