US FinTech PULSE has extended its debit fraud protection deal with global analytics software provider FICO.

The forthcoming 2023 PULSE Debit Issuer Study, conducted for PULSE by West Monroe, stated that fraud is an issue of increasing importance to debit issuers, with nearly 90% of survey respondents reporting increased impact of and attention to fraud in 2022.
