Use the resources on Microsoft Learn to discover methods of supporting data security within your organization, whether you’re a functional consultant, a business user, a data analyst, or a developer. Learn how Fraud Protection helps safeguard customer accounts and build customer trust. Sandra Feinberg, Microsoft Principal Program Manager, offers insight on the subject. She observes that any enterprise using a Dynamics 365 Fraud Protection solution should consider that its high-quality data can be used not only to thwart fraud but also to make good decisions about customers while decreasing false positives. As she explains, “It’s not just about stopping bad transactions, but it’s uplifting those good transactions.”
What is Dynamics 365 Fraud Protection?
Dynamics 365 Fraud Protection helps you know your customers, decrease fraud costs, and improve the customer experience. Adaptive AI is an exciting technology that Fraud Prevention uses to learn fraud patterns as they continuously evolve and to prevent payment and account-creation fraud. For example, who is making the purchase? Is it a person? Sandra notes that businesses use this technology to help protect their accounts, saying, “Adaptive AI learns and adapts to patterns of legitimate and fraudulent account activities.” Importantly, she also points out, “Fraud protection is not just about knowing who the bad guys are, it’s about using the data to know who the good guys are, as well.”
