NuData Fraud Risk Analysis 2020

November 11,2020

As with the chargeback report, this series is broken into several posts covering a range of topics.

In this series, we cover the attack modes taken by bad actors to carry out fraud and the impact fraudulent activities have on different industries. Let’s look at the numbers and just how much has changed in the digital landscape in lieu of COVID-19.

What 2020 Has Told Us By the Numbers

This year has been strange. And it has been made more complicated by fraud. Up to 96% of login attacks against financial institutions simulated human behavior. Increased cyber-attacks have therefore given rise to cyber-security enterprises.

Thanks to stay-at home orders, millions of Americans took to online markets to meet their shopping needs and “high-risk account creation attempts among merchants” increased while the average dollar value of chargebacks more than doubled. With a better understanding of where and how these changes are taking place, we’ve assembled a report for your learning pleasure.

Here are additional key findings the year had to offer:

0 %

Growth in high-risk mobile traffic.

0 %

Growth in the average dollar value of a chargeback.

0 %

Increase in travel traffic since pandemic lockdown.

As we look at fraud risks in 2020, we will assess current market trends about specific issues related to:

Financial Institutions

Online Web Traffic & Mobile Developments

Travel

Chargebacks
