ProctorU Solving Student Identify Fraud

Flying Under the Radar: Student Identity Fraud in Distance Education

The CEO of ProctorU offers advice on how institutions can manage the increasing threat of identity fraud in the Title IV realm.

Don Kassner is the CEO and president of ProctorU, an authentication service. With over 12 years of experience in higher education, Kassner has a deep understanding of the unique needs of distance education, having served as president of the online Andrew Jackson University from 2005 to 2010.

What if you discovered that more than $187 million of federal student aid had been lost due to elaborate, well-planned identity fraud across the country?

That’s the estimated amount federal aid recipients may have illegally received from 2009 to 2012, according to a 2013 report by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Inspector General (OIG). It sounds like something that should make front-page news. However, the issue of financial aid fraud largely remains under the radar.

Inside a Fraud Ring

Financial aid fraud, sometimes referred to as Title IV fraud, is an elaborate crime. And although the fraud rings often target fully online institutions, traditional institutions offering online degree programs are more and more at risk.

2011 OIG report on fraud rings that target distance-education institutions found that a ringleader or associated accomplices secure identifying information from “straw students,” who voluntarily provide their personal information in exchange for some of the funds. The ringleader then applies to online programs and submits financial aid applications using the straw students’ personal information.

A fraud accomplice does the bare minimum needed to show participation in a course in order to qualify for disbursement of funds. After the institution is paid, the straw student receives the remaining balance of the federal aid, which is then split among those who participated in the fraud. The “student” then drops the course or ends up failing, due to lack of participation.

Student Identity Management

Distance education is a target because some institutions fail to confirm student identity at the time of enrollment, financial aid distribution or class attendance. The anonymity of the Internet shields the fraud rings.

In my time as president of an online university and as CEO of the web-based proctoring service ProctorU, I’ve come to understand why institutions may fear shining a spotlight on financial aid fraud and the holes in existing systems and processes. However, we need to break down the illusion of security these fraud rings operate under, ensuring that their crimes do not go unnoticed.

I encourage all institutions, especially those with growing distance and online program offerings, to be proactive in implementing student identity management practices to protect themselves and their students from online and academic fraud.

Technology As a Solution

Developing a process for securing student identity is not a challenge colleges and universities have to overcome on their own. There are a lot of innovative technologies out there that can help protect against financial aid fraud. Face recognition, fingerprint scanning and keystroke biometric technology might sound like they are straight out of a futuristic movie, but these technologies can actually be easily implemented today.

Students confirm their identity at a traditional brick-and-mortar institution by presenting a form of ID in person. Asking students to do the same in an online course by using a technology-based process is simply extending traditional practices to meet the demands of a growing online marketplace.

In establishing ProctorU’s online student authentication service, Ucard, we applied our blended approach of technology and the human element, making it possible to verify a student’s identity in a matter of minutes. Regardless of how a student’s identity is verified, there is no doubt that student identity management is an extremely effective way to battle financial aid fraud. However, doing this also has larger implications and benefits for distance education.

By confirming the identity of students, institutions can ensure academic credibility for their students, their courses and their degree programs and, hopefully, can put these fraud rings out of business.

Product listing ads are unlike other ad channels in that they're quantitative in nature, with every product in a retailer's catalog representing its own ad unit, all of which need to be evaluated and adjusted continuously. Sidecar's unique algorithm collects and analyzes over one million data points for the average catalog daily, and predictively assigns the right bid to each product in the feed, ensuring that the right ad displays to the right consumer at the right time.

"Sidecar was built specifically to help e-commerce brands gain a competitive advantage in product advertising by applying programmatic technology to both bid management and feed content optimization," said Andre Golsorkhi, CEO and founder of Sidecar. "As product listing ad channels have proven to be the fastest-growing and most efficient revenue growth driver in e-commerce, we're thrilled to bring the Sidecar advantage to Nuts.com."

The signing of Nuts.com is the latest in what's been a momentum-filled 2015 for Sidecar. The company has doubled its employee base since early 2014, and in Q1, saw its management of e-commerce revenue through shopping channels increase 330% YoY.  

Sidecar was also named a 2015 Gartner Cool Vendor and last month was awarded a 2015 Enterprise Awardby the Greater Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technology.  

About Sidecar 
Sidecar is the only programmatic technology that optimizes product listing ads in Google Shopping, Bing shopping and CSEs.

Sidecar Introduces Industry Leading Offering

blog_image_4

The SaaS firm's latest release changes the Google Shopping game by intelligently grouping products based on key performance metrics, ensuring that every product has the right bid at the right time.

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 18, 2015Sidecar, the only fully automated technology for grouping and bidding products in Google Shopping campaigns, today announced product enhancements that take precision bidding to the next level. The new release brings Intelligent Product Grouping functionality to the channel; a proprietary feature that groups products based on key performance metrics and product data, continuously adjusting bids to maximize revenue and profitability.

The Sidecar release solves one of the biggest challenges e-commerce marketers face when trying to optimize their Google Shopping campaigns; assigning the right bid to every product at the right time. Currently, most retailers are too resource-constrained to group products beyond Google's default controls, such as brand or category, resulting in wasted ad spend or missed revenue opportunities. Even retailers that group by margin leave opportunities on the table by not considering key product performance metrics in bid strategies.

Sidecar changes that with Intelligent Product Grouping.  Working in tandem with Sidecar's existing automated bidding functionality, the new best-in-class technology evaluates every SKU in a retailer's catalog and dynamically groups products based on performance and a retailer's unique business and return goals.

"E-commerce marketers are investing heavily in the Google Shopping channel, but some are seeing plateauing results and are trying to determine how to increase volume and efficiency," said Andre Golsorkhi, founder and CEO of Sidecar. "Google Shopping is a unique channel that requires a shift in the approach from content-driven channels like text advertising. Success in product level advertising has little to do with content, and nearly everything to do with math; calculating the right bid for the right product at the right time.  Sidecar was built specifically to solve this challenge, by programmatically leveraging key performance metrics and product data to deliver maximum gains in Google Shopping."

(How is your PLA campaign really performing?  Click here for a no-cost effectiveness report of your existing campaign)

The release also features the debut of the Sidecar Dashboard, providing marketers with an intuitive, measurable view of how Sidecar is improving campaign performance in the Google Shopping channel. The dashboard also surfaces valuable data, revealing recent trends and opportunities marketers might not otherwise uncover in their catalog. The Dashboard highlights high and low performing products and brands according to KPIs (click-through rate, conversion rate, and cost/sale), giving marketers more information and context to make merchandising decisions on the site.

Other features include:

  • Mobile Optimization: Mobile traffic in the channel is an enormous opportunity, and growing. Sidecar automatically optimizes mobile bid adjustments to capture the mobile growth market while still performing to a retailer's specific return goal.
  • Automated Feed Optimization: Feed content optimization is just one piece of the Google Shopping puzzle, but well-defined titles and descriptions ensure that your customers will find the exact product they're looking for. Sidecar optimizes feed titles with relevant product attributes that increase impressions for maximum campaign impact.  

This Sidecar release follows a year of significant growth and innovation for Sidecar.  In 2014, it added a bevy of world-class e-commerce brands to its client roster, including Nomorerack, Internet Retailer's 2015 digital marketer of the year, and also raised additional growth capital led by Osage Venture Partners

Waywire - New Patent and New COO

Waywire Grows Channel Network, Names New COO to Continue Building
 / Jul 15, 2014 - The VideoInk

WayWireImage3

Video curation and discovery service Waywire believes it can be the “program guide” for digital video, and in doing so, solve the video discovery problem that continues to plague the industry.

To accomplish this, Waywire has been rolling out curated video channels, some tied to individual content brands and others that focus on specific genres, topics, or interests. Users are able to follow these channels via a simple user interface (see below), which helps them create a personalized guide to access the content they want to watch from the sources and curators they are interested in following.

Waywire’s network has grown to hundreds of channels since the beginning of the year. The service isn’t looking to slow down anytime soon, either, announcing this morning the addition of a bulk of new channels and a new chief operating officer to oversee all of the growth.

waywire program guideEighty-five new brand-focused channels are now available on Waywire, including those for Al Jazeera, RT America, DanceOn, and Maker Camp, as well as several for YouTubers likeMakeupbyMandy24 (real name: Amanda Steele).

In addition, Waywire has expanded its roster of expert curators to 25. These individuals are responsible for managing Waywire’s network of curated content hubs, which go beyond simply offering video content around a particular brand or topic. In addition to video, these channels feature relevant social and RSS feeds and photos, as well as several community options to keep followers entertained and engaged.

Waywire is careful to manage its network of channels to ensure a healthy balance between “web-discovered” branded channels and curated channels, says Steve Rosenbaum, CEO of Magnify Networks, which acquired Waywire last fall.

That said, Waywire’s hand-curated offering is a major part of the service’s growth strategy. Even with 25 curators on board, the service will continue to add 2-4 new curators a week through the fall, says Rosenbaum.

Overseeing all of this will be new Waywire COO Todd Tarpley, who joined the service a few weeks ago. “We were looking for someone who had a background in cable television and quality niche publishing,” says Rosenbaum. On this front, Tarpley has plenty of experience, having previously served as GM of digital at Meredith’s Parents Network, VP of online at Nielsen, and VP of interactive at A+E Networks.

Those are not the only updates from Waywire, though.

On the monetization side, Waywire has also been awarded a patent for its “Pre-Roll Everywhere” technology, which enables clients that use the service’s curation platform to run ads as interstitial units before a third-party video is pulled up and starts playing. The PRE patent builds off Waywire’s “Video Channel Creation” patent, which makes it possible for publishers, brands, and websites to create collections of video content that they can curate, share, and monetize.

Lumesis Reports Record User Growth

 

 Lumesis, Inc. Reports Record Growth in User Base Prompted by New Time-of-Trade Disclosure Rule

Municipal Compliance Solution Reaches 30,000 Users as Protection of the Retail and Non-Sophisticated Market Participant Continues to be of Importance to Regulators

 Stamford, CT (PRWEB) June 11, 2014

 Lumesis Inc., a financial services software firm providing business efficiency, regulatory and data solutions for the municipal bond marketplace under the DIVER brand, announced today that their DIVER Advisor active user base has grown by a factor of 5.5x (alternative: has grown 550%) since the SEC approved the MSRB’s New Time-of-Trade Disclosure (Rule G-47), and amended Suitability (Rule G-19) rules on March 7, 2014. The Advisor platform is now generating tens of thousands of bond reports per month and registering, on average, two Municipal Bond Reports for every trade. These actions highlight the fact that Financial Advisors, Sales and Traders, are using the bond reports for research purposes, as well as for business efficiency and regulatory adherence purposes at or before the time of trade.

“The introduction of the new and amended rules is prompting many firms to re-examine policies, procedures and what is actually being done when a municipal bond is bought or sold to ensure compliance. This is especially important in this environment of heightened regulatory scrutiny,” said Gregg L. Bienstock Esq., CEO and Co-Founder, Lumesis. “The rapid growth of our user base and the surge in Municipal Bond Report generation validates the platform’s ability to support regulatory needs and demonstrates its capacity to increase business efficiency and enhance client service. We are excited to see our platform become the standard in municipal Time-of-Trade Disclosure.”

 President, COO and Co-Founder of Lumesis Tim Stevens, CFA added, “As we built Advisor, we engaged client and market participants to ensure the platform was versatile and addressed both regulatory and business needs. The Advisor platform leverages our core competencies in data and software development. These two critical proficiencies, combined with our municipal market expertise and commitment to meeting our clients’ needs, allow us to bring products with significant value to the municipal market.”

 The Advisor platform was created to address the time-consuming and clarified requirements for Time-of-Trade Disclosure Obligation, Suitably determinations and Supervision requirements for municipal bonds. Municipal Bond Reports, which are at the core of the platform, aggregate key data and information for every municipal bond.

 Demand for the Advisor platform along with the topical evolution of regulatory requirements prompted Lumesis to launch a series of thought leadership webinars focusing on the new and amended rules. To participate in the upcoming virtual event “Regulatory Requirements and Technology” scheduled for June 12 at 2 p.m. ET Register Here.

 Founded in 2010, Lumesis, Inc. is a financial technology company focused on providing business efficiency, data and regulatory solutions for the municipal marketplace under the DIVER brand. Providing access to hundreds of datasets, DIVER solutions leverage the most current economic and demographic data available from both public and private sources, combine that with security master file data, credit ratings, continuing disclosures, price and yield data, news links and more.
