ADDRESSING A TRIPLE THREAT TO THE INDUSTRY
With the recent rise in the use of vehicles as weapons in terrorist attacks, the spread of ‘county line’ drug dealing using hired cars and high-value rental car theft through identity fraud, rental companies are facing a three-fold challenge.
Security is becoming more and more of an issue, in terms of loss of money, time and reputation. The ability to effectively screen hirer identity and assess risk levels in real time and at the point of hire, and to check that crime and fraud are not being facilitated from within the rental company staff, is a powerful tool in the fight against these challenges.
Today’s fraudsters and terrorists are extremely sophisticated. They are always looking to stay one step ahead of the game, so that when one window of opportunity for their criminal activities closes, they are already looking into the next one. It is therefore important for organisations to deploy a risk prevention and detection solution, which is able to evolve with the changing landscape, and keep pace with threats.
