When Frenemies Align: Cybersecurity and Fraud Putting Their Differences Aside for the Customer
Fraud prevention and cybersecurity teams are typically siloed, separate groups reporting to different organizational heads. “Frenemies” at best, despite the fact they face common threats, tools and exploits. Some organizations, however – particularly those with large external customer bases – are finding great success in converging these two teams.

All without getting in the way of customer experience.
