The use of touchscreen based mobile devices is prevalent today, with each containing potentially vast amounts of personal data and special access. The security consideration surrounding these devices is the cause of much concern for financial institutions and those involved in the prevention of cybercrime.

According to the PwC 2018 Global Economic Crime and Fraud Survey, 49% of organizations globally claim they’ve been a victim of fraud and economic crime in the last two years. With this in mind, finding new ways to learn and recognize the behavior of fraudsters online becomes a topic of great importance.

This whitepaper looks at how mobile device usage is unique to an individual and is near impossible to replicate. Such as how the device is used and the ergonomic swipe behavior used whilst making a transaction is something an imposter would find near impossible to replicate.
