During COVID-19 where online activities like shopping, live streaming and social networking have become more prevalent, associated risks have also increased with alarming speed. According to Sift’s Q2 2020 Digital Trust & Safety Index, in the first half of 2020, online marketplaces were hit with a 109% increase in attempted identity theft with nearly half of it being financially motivated scams. Utilizing leading fraud prevention systems for the past 10 years, Alorica delivers solutions for identity & credit monitoring as well as detection of account takeovers, fraud and data breaches—resolving over 2 million fraud cases annually for online customers.
“Our job is not only to protect our clients’ brand equity and their customers’ trust, but also to keep the internet safe. As digital interactions continue to grow at a tremendous rate, this responsibility becomes even more important, explained Crowley. “Based on our ability to deliver on the overwhelming need so far this year, we have experienced 128% growth in managing these social CX programs, and we’re looking forward to seven-fold growth in this space by 2022.”
