PANEL: Weaving Alternative Data into the Fabric of Payments Fraud Prevention
Panel consisting of Plaid, Coinbase and Square (Coinbase confirmed, Square is confirming). The goal of the panel is to provide an informative discussion of how merchants can apply alternative data sources to their fraud mitigation. The panel will be relevant to MRC members because the panelists will share best practices of how they are applying alternative data to augment their fraud mitigation, account takeover detection and chargeback prevention. Square will talk about the application of alternative data sources to card payments, while Coinbase will discuss how blockchain payments involve both similar and unique challenges and solutions, with interesting twists.
