 Understanding Geolocation & Device Identification 

In this training session these core technologies are discussed along with where they provide overlap and where they provide differentiation. The fundamental features, differences and similarities of each of these tools are discussed while describing how they work, who uses them and how to use their results. You will also learn how to discuss best practices with the use of each of these different technologies as well as how to explain and interpret the signals device identification, IP geolocation, proxy detection and mobile phone geo-locating can provide when used both individually and in combination.

For a merchant starting business, if they know about these training programs it would save them a lot of trouble down the road. Unfortunately many don’t learn about fraud until it is too late.

The training program is fantastic. You don’t have to download anything, it runs quickly and easily right on your web browser. You can pause and go back to write down or review information, play and navigate through the lessons seamlessly.

With my experience I thought I would breeze through the training program with no problem, but I’m finding myself challenged in some aspects and learning things I haven’t seen before.
