How to Implement Continuous Adaptive Risk and Trust Fast (CARTA)

We are going from a siloed back-office approach, where identity, risk and fraud where individual IT operations, with limited to no support for multi-channel. To a situation we can simplify, accelerate, and reduce the cost of identity, risk and fraud projects. One platform to orchestrate authentication, authorization, regulatory compliance, risk and fraud prevention, and account opening across all your channels and applications.

Takeaways: 

  1. See how larges international banks, insurance, pension, retailer, transportation, government invests in to get control of identity, fraud and risk. They have realized that looking at them as isolated functions isn't enough anymore.
  2. Fraudsters become more and more advanced and traditional approaches to these issues is extremely slow, expensive and hard to control. Customers like HSBC, UBS, Citi, JP Morgan, TD Bank, AXA, Rabobank, and others have all come to the conclusion that the only way to get this under control is to invest in a platform instead of niche solutions isolated.
