Key focus areas

FRAUD AND ABUSE

Whether it’s responding to a coordinated or opportunistic attack, or developing a broader strategy to address issues related to fraud, piracy or abuse, FiveBy will work with you to find the optimum solution.

RISK INTELLIGENCE

The consequences of disregarding sanctions compliance and other financial regulations are significant and can impact a company’s reputation, privileges and their bottom line. FiveBy provides the professional insights you need to bring everything into compliance.

SECURITY AND DISINFORMATION

In today’s business climate, developing a process to address security and disinformation promptly and decisively and in a manner that informs longer term preventative processes is more important than ever. FiveBy has the expertise to provide an action plan that’s right on target.

Typical engagements FiveBy has done over the years include:
  • Delivering an end-to-end solution to address software piracy at a major global software firm—including market analysis and segmentation, development of the engineering solution, program management, go-to-market planning and launch.
  • Building new anti-fraud capabilities for a major gaming platform provider including new security measures that enabled them to respond to coordinated and opportunistic attacks on their platform, thereby decreasing instances of fraud, chargebacks and associated activity.
  • Implementing a fully managed solution for a US tech giant to provide sanctions due diligence research, including deep-dive analysis on possible sanctions evaders, assessments of evasion methodologies, and sanctions policy analysis to protect the company from illicit actors and regulatory risk.
