Voice Biometrics: Best Practices in Reducing Call Center Identity Theft, Fraud & Risk

SpeechTek 2016

Voice Biometrics: Best Practices in Reducing Call Center Identity Theft, Fraud and Risk 2016

Customer Identity Authentication in the age of digital interaction, customer engagement and commerce is a highly necessary component in protecting customers from fraud as well as for managing business risk. While many organizations often consider a certain percentage of fraudulent transactions as an acceptable (risk calculation) cost of doing business, the bigger issue is how to prevent fraud and identity-theft related losses while enhancing the trust, quality and security of the customer experience. Two distinct – and possibly conflicting – motivations overshadow the discussion on customer identification authentication (CIA).

On the one hand, organizations want to improve customer service, which means dealing with contact center queries quickly and efficiently. On the other, organizations want to improve risk management. That means limiting to as small a percentage as possible fraudulent attempts at credit card purchases, identify theft, prescription drug misuse, or other crimes. These two motivations overlap sometimes as well: organizations strive to assure customers that their call-center processes keep personal information safe and secure.

Session: Voice Biometrics: Best Practices in Reducing Call Center Identity Theft, Fraud & Risk
Where: SpeechTEK 2016  at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.
When: May 23, 2016, 3:15 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Using case studies and survey analysis, Leslie Ament, SVP, research, and principal analyst of Hypatia Research Group, will reveal insights into:

  • The state of the market, including industries committed to it;
  • Major software vendors providing CIA solutions & technology;
  • Insights from Hypatia Research Group’s global survey focused on customer identity authentication;
  • What to consider in the purchase and deployment of CIA technology;
  • Benchmarks on maturity levels in Omni-channel customer engagement initiatives;
  • How to select the right performance metrics for assessing ROI and average ROI gained as a result of successful deployments.
