Coordinated fraud rings see insurers as easy targets.
Even beyond the damage of singular fraud attempts, sophisticated, coordinated fraud rings are also honing in on opportunities provided by digital insurers. Threading the online-needle between customer security, convenience, and privacy is no small feat. But it is a competitive and customer-service imperative.
Digital fraud is evolving, and quickly. Can insurers keep up?
PII is increasingly compromised. Data breaches abound, and all that personal information is circulated, folded into synthetic identities, and used to get quotes for fraudsters. Whether or not companies can keep up with fraud will separate the winners from the others in the increasingly digital landscape.
Interpreting point-in-time behavioral data keeps insurers ahead.
Secure growth means a secure future. By reading digital body language of applicants, insurers can optimize data and underwriting costs, identify risk sooner, compare genuine vs. fraudulent applicants, visualize user in-quote behavior and mitigate fraud.
