  • FICO is releasing new payment card fraud detection models focused on making card-not-present (CNP) transactions more convenient and secure.
  • CNP fraud is the leading form of card fraud in most countries
  • Based on analysis of more than 4 billion transactions, the new models can significantly reduce CNP fraud losses without increasing false positive rates.
  • The new models have been quantifiably proven to double the detection of fraudulent, high-value CNP transactions on the first attempted transaction.
  • The models will be released to FICO® Falcon® Platform customers at no additional charge. The FICO Falcon Platform protects more than 2.6 billion payment cards worldwide.

Silicon Valley analytic software firm FICO today announced that its new Falcon consortium models for payment card fraud detection include machine learning innovations that improve card-not-present (CNP) fraud detection by 30% without increasing the false positive rate, a standard metric for fraud model performance. These new Falcon consortium models for both credit and debit cards will be available first for FICO® Falcon® Platform customers in the UK and Europe this fall, and then to customers in other markets worldwide.
