Launching RSA Ideas

Posted by Yael Gour Employee Apr 3, 2018

For years RSA has been in business of providing best-in-class security  and Anti fraud products and services to you, our customers.  I am proud to be surrounded by extremely intelligent and creative coworkers who amaze me with their knowledge, imagination, and ability to make abstract a reality on daily basis.  However, I am even more astounded by the unending well of new ideas I see coming from our customer community every time I interact with or observe an interaction between us and you.  You are the true inspiration and driving force of our innovation.  We build products that solve your problems, we offer services that help you, and everything we do - we do with you and your success in mind.

 

This is why I am happy to officially introduce you to a new way to harvest and crowdsource our collective ideas together.  This month, we have launched new idea pages on our RSA Link Community:

These destination pages are places for you to show off your creativity and need, to suggest ways that would improve our offerings to help you be more successful.  It is also the place where you can collaborate on your ideas with other like-minded individuals and vote on ideas suggested by others.

 

We have a great customer community, let’s harness its creative power to see what we can come up with together.

 

For more information, please check out the following FAQs:

Given that it was introduced to the world in the early 2000s, it probably comes as no great surprise to learn that the 3D Secure protocol isn’t optimized for mobile or, indeed, designed to deliver the fast, frictionless checkout that ecommerce customers now expect. And that’s not all—while use of smartphones, tablets, and digital wallets has boomed, so too has fraud.

 

The latest release of the 3D Secure protocol (also referred to as EMV® 3D Secure or 3D Secure 2.0) is designed for customer experience first, yet it addresses the need for more secure transactions across a number of devices. Because this release addresses many of the issues associated with 3DS 1.0.2 and comes with a list of new benefits for merchants, we expect uptake to be high—so banks and other issuers need to adopt in good time too, or accept the liability shift without any of the benefits of adoption.

 

What’s new?

The enduring challenge for fraud management teams is to improve payment security without imposing on the shopping experience for their customers. Make things too difficult for them, and cart abandonment could end up losing retailers more money than fraud itself. 3D Secure 2.0 helps strike the right balance by:

  • Eliminating active enrollment. Cards can now be enrolled automatically, avoiding the need for a lengthy sign-up process.
  • Leveraging rich data. Having much more data to analyze with each transaction means more accurate risk assessment and fewer orders challenged. This is probably the primary benefit of the protocol for issuers.
  • Offering device-agnostic support. Software development kits (SDKs) allow merchants to integrate authentication with a whole host of devices, from smartphones to wearables to gaming consoles, making 3D Secure truly ready for the Internet of Things (IoT).
  • Supporting smarter, broader authentication. Static passwords are out, while one-time passwords, biometric IDs and out-of-band authentication are in—as are authentication for in-app purchases and digital wallets.
  • Faster authentication. Performance improvements for end-to-end processing, better integration with merchant apps and sites, and smarter authentication all contribute to smoother and faster checkout.

 

What’s in it for issuers?

As already mentioned, issuers are a primary beneficiary of the much richer data exchange that comes with 3D Secure, because it enables better fraud detection. As merchants upgrade or sign up for the first time, they immediately benefit from the associated liability shift—whether or not their customers' issuers support the new protocol. From the issuer's perspective, why face the liability shift without benefit of better fraud detection? Embracing 3D Secure 2.0 is just common sense.

 

It isn't the only reason to get on board. Happy customers spend more, and one way to make customers happy is to couple a great customer experience with better security and fraud prevention.

 

Finally, adoption of 3D Secure 2.0 can help in addressing many information security requirements common to a variety of national and industry-related regulations, helping both merchants and issuers ease the burden of regulatory compliance.  For example, many of the guidelines set forth in the EU’s Payment Services Directive II (PSD2) are on par with the latest 3D Secure protocol.

 

Great! When can we start?

MasterCard and Visa are both expected to publish their program rules and guidelines by the end of this year, and 3D Secure 2.0 is expected to be mandated first in Australia as early as April 2018. The latest timelines and major milestones can be viewed here.

 

Our customers don’t need to wait to enjoy the benefits, though: we’ve been delivering many of the key features of 3D Secure 2.0 for a decade. Leveraging RSA’s risk-based authentication technology, some issuers already have eliminated cardholder enrollment and static passwords, offer biometric authentication, transaction signing and out-of-band authentication, and much more—across web and mobile channels. The results speak for themselves - achieving a 97% detection rate at a 5% intervention rate.

RSA Charge 2017, the premier event on RSA® Business-Driven Security™ solutions, unites an elite community of customers, partners and industry experts dedicated to tackling the most pressing issues across cybersecurity and business risk management. Through a powerful combination of keynote speeches, break-out sessions and hands-on demos, you’ll discover how to implement a Business-Driven Security strategy to help your organization thrive in an increasingly uncertain, high-risk world. Join us October 17 – 19 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.

The consumer world is at a historical inflection point in which the ways individuals are interacting and transacting is changing more than we have ever seen before. Organizations are now managing multiple digital channels and face unprecedented business and security challenges ranging from legislative pressure, competition from new entrants forcing organizations to offer consumers more convenience and flexibility and the increase in potential points of vulnerabilities in which cybercriminals can gain access. These disruptors in the consumer space are all interrelated and if not looked at that way will have grave consequences to the security of those environments. Especially, the financial services industry which is facing disruptive pressures on many fronts:

  • Customer expectations are changing – digital transactions are expected to be fast, frictionless, personalized, channel agnostic and secure.
  • FinTech innovation is leading to new competition offering digital services forcing organizations to rethink their strategy and create new partnerships powered by the API economy.
  • Sweeping global regulations are being created to drive more accountability for consumer data protection, security and privacy such as PSD2, GDPR, SEPA and FFIEC.
  • Dramatic growth in digital interactions driven by flexibility in transacting through Internet of Things (IOT), shift towards online shopping and payments innovation like 3DS 2.0. Yet, minimal growth in organizational resources to mitigate fraud and keep pace with cybercrime is forcing organizations to leverage new technologies like data analytics and automation and case management.

The Fraud and Risk Intelligence track at RSA Charge will address many of these trends and how RSA’s strategy and roadmap is helping our customers on their journey to an omni-channel fraud management strategy. The track title is aptly named “Reducing Fraud – Not Your Customers” as we recognize the challenge our customers face to reduce fraud without impacting the user experience. We will be featuring some interesting customer case studies on fraud detection and prevention in the cloud, some great discussions planned on the consumer authentication and mobile revolution, best practices for securing the open banking API economy, and how organizations can leverage machine automation to mitigate fraud more effectively.

 

Also, we will be hosting a peer birds of a feather luncheon which will include topics such as mobile fraud strategies, planning for 3D Secure 2.0 and digital payments and there will be an exclusive meetup for RSA Web Threat Detection customers to engage. We will also be providing a first look at new innovations in our lab environments and the partner Innovation Zone.

 

RSA Charge Fraud and Risk Intelligence track is designed to empower Anti-fraud leaders to be better equipped to discuss the current business impact of fraud risk and prepare for the future by enabling them to work more collaboratively with business leaders to ensure they are protecting what matters most.
