Building Trusted Online Government Services

Start Date:7/29/2021

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes


Government agencies simultaneously experienced a surge in demand from COVID-19 pandemic-related claims and unprecedented levels of fraud. Prior to the crisis, many had already been focused on improving their online customer portals and processes. A study conducted by Ponemon Institute asked nearly 600 leaders across federal, state and local government agencies about their experiences with customer fraud and the technology used to combat it. The results revealed most agencies aren’t making adequate investments in security technologies to protect customer data and make online access to accounts secure and convenient.

This webinar explains how agencies can master these challenges and position themselves to improve service levels with a friction-right approach that seamlessly verifies and authenticates constituents throughout the customer journey. Using integrated identity proofing, risk-based authentication and fraud analytics, agencies can scale protection while delivering the streamlined experience constituents demand.
