41st Parameter Speaking on Fighting International Air Travel Fraud at China Airline Booking & Payment Summit '09

  • Major airlines tackling growing travel industry fraud challenges including mobile devices with 41st Parameter's leading risk management tools

Scottsdale, Ariz. – October 27, 2009 – 41st Parameter has been invited to present during the upcoming China Airline Booking & Payment Summit, October 29-30 in Shanghai, China. Summit organisers called upon 41st Parameter to host and participate in two separate presentations during the conference; sharing knowledge derived from the company's proven online fraud detection and prevention solutions for the Airline Industry.
October 29th – 41st Parameter will sit on a panel titled "The Development of an Airline's Online Payment Strategy" moderated by AsiaPay with additional panelists from Gulf Air, Shanghai Airlines and China United Airlines. Mobile payment fraud is an emerging challenge for the Airline Industry; issues and counter-measures will be discussed.

October 30th - 41st Parameter will speak on "The Importance of Device Data: Empowering Airlines to Detect and Prevent Card Not Present Fraud across Multiple Reservation Channels." The company will discuss the value of using a wider variety of information, including a combination of device information from any Internet-connected device combined with user-entered data, to more effectively detect fraud.

Payments fraud in the international airline industry is a serious and growing problem with reported losses exceeding $1.4 billion annually. A leading Chinese payment service provider recently reported a 60 per cent increase in Card Not Present fraud for Chinese airlines in the first half of 2009.

In addition, a surge in the use of mobile devices has created an acute challenge for the airline industry. In-Stat predicts the mobile payments market in China will grow to more than $13 billion by 2013. In a 2009 survey of airline industry fraud executives, 41st Parameter found most airlines reported insufficient rules and defence mechanisms, and a rise in card-not-present fraud.
