IDENTITY THEFT IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM

Credit cards, social securities, government ids, and all kind of personal identification documents are counterfeited and stolen to take advantage of using others names and services.

CHALLENGE

Cooper Credit Card, from Brazil, was having a high amount of cases where people wanted to use their rewards cards using fake IDs and addresses. They only compared that the data of the person matched the given ID.

SOLUTION

Biometrics is a service that guarantees that a person is known by a unique identity and that only that person can access to a specific service.

RESULTS

Cooper Credit Card now uses Biometrics to securely enroll a customer in the database, and then to verify that only that customer uses their cards. They have seen a 60% reduction of identity theft cases when using Biometrics to enroll and verify new people in their rewards system.

HOW DID WE DO IT



Security is the concept we put at the core of the whole project. A set of services using the latest techniques of end-to-end encryption were created that enable customer to:


ENROLL

VERIFY

IDENTIFY

UNENROLL





The services support a variety of biometric features such as fingerprint, face, iris, and voice thanks to the use of a powerful biometrics recognition engine in the back end. They can be used isolated or combined to enhance the security of the system.







CLOUD

The services can be accessed by any device and platform by an identified user. This flexibility allows the system to grow organically into different applications.




Given that we were talking about thousands of accesses everyday, we also focused in scalability using microservices to scale up or down the processing power and therefore make savings as compared to having a fixed amount of processing power.
