The visual representation is very impressive - top notch. The flow charts and graphics break down technical and high level topics into very easy to understand visual representations. Everything is broken down in a way that can be applied to real business issues.

For a merchant starting business, knowing about these training programs would save them a lot of trouble down the road. Unfortunately many don’t learn about fraud until it's too late.

The material is spot on, especially for someone who is either building an internal fraud solution or choosing an external one.

M. Wrobleski
Director of Fraud & Risk, GSN Digital

 

One of the key things I’ve taken away was that there were only a handful of fraud solution providers in the market a decade ago, and now there are over 100. The training program provides a more holistic approach to discussing the fraud vendors and techniques in the market and does a great job encompassing everything.

For candidates that have already presented, or will soon be presenting, on a topic related to eCommerce, e-payments and/or fraud prevention at a recognized industry event, they may complete this requirement by furnishing sufficient proof that they presented on the applicable topic (such as a copy of the event schedule including their name and discussion topic/title). Candidates providing a written publication may send previous article URLs which will be considered for meeting this requirement. Candidates that need to create an article or published document are able to do so on a wide range of topic ideas pertaining to the payments and fraud industries, but these topics and documents must be approved by The Fraud Practice for meeting this requirement. The article must provide real content and value and will be made available in the public domain for other fraud and payment professionals to read.
