CRIFBÜRGEL: "Innovations in Credit & Fraud" webinar series a great success

CRIFBÜRGEL organized a webinar series from September 14-18. The event "Innovations in Credit Fraud", which normally takes place in Frankfurt, was entirely digital this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

During the 5-day event, there were seven webinars on current topics. A total of almost 170 delegates, mainly from the finance and banking sector, took part.

The webinars started on Monday with Dr. Sebastian Schnelle from CRIFBÜRGEL, who spoke about the effects of the coronavirus crisis on the German economy. On Monday afternoon, Thomas Hampf (Sales Director at AUTHADA GmbH) presented the AUTHADA service and talked about cooperation with CRIFBÜRGEL. With the AUTHADA app, an NFC-capable smartphone, and an electronic identity card with PIN, identification in the digital world is possible within seconds.

Tuesday started with a presentation by Masoumeh Moridian. The credit risk management expert from Raiffeisenlandesbank Niederösterreich-Wien AG demonstrated the innovative online sales of the regional bank in a very practical way and showed examples of how consumers can get an online loan from the bank.

On Wednesday morning, Dalibor Kostic from CRIF GmbH in Vienna started with the presentation "Digital onboarding of the credit application route in the phygital world". Kostic presented PHYON with demos in a very user-friendly way.

The second webinar on Wednesday was given by Vanessa Dombek (CURENTIS AG) and Stefan Schetter (CRIFBÜRGEL), who introduced the KYC MORE product to the audience.

On Thursday, there was another external presentation, which focused on the topic of fraud. Mathias Schollmeyer (Senior Solutions Consultant Fraud and Identity) from LexisNexis® Risk Solutions spoke on the topic "What comes together, belongs together – a 360º customer view for card-issuing banks".

On Friday, the final webinar was once again about the coronavirus pandemic. Dirk Burdorf of CRIF Credit Solutions GmbH analyzed the effects of the coronavirus crisis on existing and new business in connection to the credit rating of consumers.

It was a great series of webinars, which will certainly be continued in early 2021.
