IP Reputation: Reducing Online Fraud and Risk
Best Practices for Mitigating Risk in a Rapidly Changing Environment
The pandemic fueled an explosion in ecommerce – the equivalent of 10 years of growth in Q1 2020 alone. Sales are forecast to continue growing.
The surge has created opportunities for fraudsters to do what they do best – scam and steal.
