With an 11% increase in risky behaviours in Financial Services since lockdown - the next episode in our Best Practice Podcast series is with Gavin Barker, Channel Manager at TransUnion (formerly iovation), talking about Device Fraud Detection.

Gavin will talk you through how device-based fraud detection works. How it helps control risk, especially when integrated with KYC and customer onboarding. And he'll outline the benefits it brings financial services professionals without impeding customers.

When: June 10 at 3pm

Episode 1 - The future is digital payments

The first episode in our series was a conversation with Nick Kerigan, previously of Barclaycard, EBRD and the FSA.

Nick is a future payments expert. He shares why a digital-first approach to payments is the only approach right now.

He talks about the importance of winning business by creating digital customer experiences and how to foster a culture of innovation when there is no lack of ideas ready to transform a business.
