"For every action, there is an equal or opposite reaction" applies to fraud prevention as well as science. When companies focus exclusively on preventing fraud, they run the risk of canceling orders by legitimate customers that may appear risky. Merchants understand that customers who have legitimate orders canceled might contact customer service, post negatively on social or even abandon them permanently for a competitor. Still, it can be overwhelming for merchants to determine how to reduce this problem, especially when it's a difficult issue to quantify. In this session, our expert panel will discuss:

• The obvious and hidden impacts and causes of false positives
• How to quantify false positives to initiate reduction actions
• Various ways companies have worked to reduce and prevent false positives, from A/B tests to re-examining risk identifiers to changing the mindset of the fraud team and more
