To effectively perform real-time assessment on these aspects, many companies use the latest technological applications. Fraud detection systems use real-time transaction risk scoring algorithms to identify questionable purchases or payments. These systems consider transaction details, user profiles, behavioral biometrics, geolocation, IP/device metadata, account information, and more. The advancement of artificial intelligence and machine learning are also aspects that have advanced our ability to perform real-time risk assessments. We discuss these concepts and how they are used.
