During the webinar the panelists looked at the impact of loyalty abuse and fraud, the difference between the two, and why the prevalence of these types of programs is important for travel businesses and their customers. Forter data indicates that loyalty fraud is on the rise, with this method of attack increasing by 89% over the last year. 

Loyalty point programs are becoming more vulnerable to opportunistic fraudsters, and as these types of customer offerings grow more common across merchants, they will need to better understand the pain points in order to protect their business from loyalty fraud.
