No Office Walls (NOW), a free counter-fraud networking forum for the insurance industry, today announced that iovation, a leading provider of device intelligence for authentication and fraud prevention, has become the first official sponsor for the No Office Walls forum. As part of the sponsorship package, NOW is using iovation’s ClearKey transparent authentication solution for secure login on its website.
No Office Walls has been set up by Dan Cassell and Cate Wright – Dan was a founder of GoCompare and IT Director and Cate headed up the Fraud department at the comparison site.
NOW will launch in March 2018 and will provide a free, secure communication platform to enable counter-fraud specialists in the industry to discuss and share knowledge, experience, and best practises in real-time.
“We are over the moon that iovation has become our first official sponsor. Given its reputation and success in helping the insurance industry combat fraud, it is a perfect partner for No Office Walls and its support will go a long way to help keep this a free forum for the industry,” said Cate Wright, co-founder of No Office Walls. “Our main goal at NOW is to promote industry collaboration in our collective fight against fraud. Too many insurance firms are working in silos and until we start sharing knowledge and best practice, the fraudsters will continue to have success.”
Molly O’Hearn, VP Operations and co-founder for iovation, said: “The insurance industry in the UK has been targeted by fraud rings that operate with surgical precision in recent years. From ghost brokering and application fraud to identity theft and account takeovers, the industry has woken up to fact that the whole is greater than the sum, and that industry collaboration will be essential for keeping fraud rings in check.
“iovation works with a number of well recognised UK insurance firms to help them not only reduce their exposure to risk, but also improve the experience for their customers via seamless, omni-channel authentication. We are thrilled to support NOW in its mission and look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration with its members.”
NOW is funded by sponsorship of industry service providers and in return provides a unique marketing platform. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Cate Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org
