Fight the rising cost of fraud with Card Risk Solutions from Fiserv.

Debit, credit and prepaid cards are the payment methods of choice for U.S. consumers. But rising card fraud, in which thieves gain direct access to deposit and credit accounts, can lead to significant losses. Although adoption of the EMV standard will significantly reduce the potential for fraud during card present transactions, it will not impact card-not-present fraud. What can your financial institution do to fight back?

Fiserv offers Card Risk Solutions designed to proactively detect and prevent fraud activity. Our innovative approach, which combines advanced fraud detection software with personalized supervision of your risk management efforts, is the reason our clients are reducing their fraud exposure by 50 percent or more.

  • Score 100 percent of transactions in real-time
  • Reduce fraud losses

    • Evaluating all transactions in real-time to immediately identify potential fraud
    • Blocking suspicious transactions with a high performance rule set and user-configured rules
