How Your Short-Term Memory Helps Us Keep You Safe From Fraudsters
A Webinar with R&D Director Tony Libell and BehavioSec VP Jordan Blake
Remembering a long list of unfamiliar digits and letters may initially involve breaking down the long list of data into more manageable chunks that fall within the capacity of short-term memory. Cognitive psychologists have argued that an average human can hold 2-9 number of objects for a limited duration of maximum 30 seconds in short-term memory.
By applying behavioral biometrics to our human limitations in short-term memory it is now possible to detect when a person isn’t who they claim to be – bringing a new weapon to the fight against identity fraud across digital channels. This toolset is already in use by several large financial institutions and has greatly improved their ability to detect Account Takeover fraud (ATO), New Account Fraud (NAF) and Card Not Present (CNP) fraud.
