  • Synthetics 101: What are synthetic identities and how are they defined in the industry today
    • Overview of the synthetic landscape, definitions, and regulations that have allowed synthetics to grow
    • Update on the regulations and SSA social security number randomization
  • How synthetics are beating enterprises current defenses: Section will look at understanding the challenges of synthetic identity fraud today along with research ID Analytics has produced showing how FI identified synthetics are able to get through enterprises traditional defenses such as fraud and credit screenings
    • Based on ID Analytics research we saw that 85-95% of identified synthetics were able to get through an enterprise’s fraud third party fraud models since they show different patterns of risk
    • We also saw that the majority of applicants were seen as good, very good, or excellent based on a traditional credit score and only saw variations when it came to unique tradelines, amount owed, life stability, and the overall impact. One year after applying we saw the identified synthetic population to be 4xs higher than the credit bad population
  • How variation around synthetic behaviors: Another reason synthetics continue to be so hard to capture is
    • We also looked at the behavior most associated with synthetic identities (SSN randomization, Credit Piggy backing, and applying through faceless channels such as mobile or online) and found that while these behaviors remain highly associated with synthetics they also are difficult to differentiate from good consumers today and are typically seen less than half the time with the identified group of synthetics
    • This makes it even more difficult for enterprises to stop synthetics especially with any kind of symptom based on rules-based solution. ID Analytics recommends enterprises use a solution that takes a holistic approach to solving many different types of fraud
  • Where synthetics are today
    • Update on how many enterprises are viewing the synthetic problem today

  • Synthetic IDs & First Party Frauds: Classification in context of overall fraud & credit losses in a lending environment. Fraud & Credit tools are rendered ineffective in capturing the risk
  • The Whack-a-mole of Fraud MOs: Fraudsters will always gravitate towards path of least resistance. Conditions & ease of perpetration determine the MOs in the short run
  • Synthetic ID Lifecycle: Initialization, Placement, Seeding, Boosting, Application, Creation, Nurture, Procreation, Monetization, Collusion, Recycle
  • Mitigation of Risk from Synthetic IDs: There are no silver bullets. Managing Synthetic ID risk is a multi- tiered, multi-step exercise of defining, monitoring, analytics & mitigation throughout customer life cycle
