Identity Element NetworkSM

What is Identity Element Network?

Identity Element NetworkSM is Experian’s risk-based, point-in-time fraud-detection tool designed to identify and prevent current account fraud and account takeover fraud. It establishes intricate identity linkages across Experian’s broad view of consumer actions to create scores and attributes that readily expose potentially fraudulent activity within existing portfolios.

Identity Element Network evaluates identities and associated identity elements via a vast identity transaction network, revealing account takeover identity theft and up-to-date fraud threats associated with inconsistent or high-risk use of numerous identity elements.

How can Identity Element Network help your business prevent current account fraud and account takeover fraud?

Identity Element Network can enable you to:

  • Reduce fraud loss — by helping you uncover high identity-fraud risk among recently booked and more established existing accounts
  • Operate more efficiently — Using Experian’s score and attributes, finite and high-cost operational resources can be pointed toward those accounts warranting additional authentication and monitoring
  • Enhance predictive performance — Integrate our intelligence with your existing internal fraud-detection models and strategies at any given process point with the help of hundreds of highly predictive Identity Element Network linkage-based attributes
  • Preserve positive customer experience — Scores and attributes help sharpen your focus on high-fraud-risk accounts; authenticate customers in a manner commensurate with associated risk, while allowing lower-risk customers to transact without disruption
