It's a delicate balancing act, as the article states, and consumers also must recognize that they may not always be able to do things like mobile RDC in real-time, as quickly as possible, if it means sacrificing security.

Re: Mobile Payment App Risks?
Tracking transaction behavior could play a big role in securing mobile deposits too. Several of the bigger banks have had mobile check deposit for long enough that they should have a good amount of data on how their customers usually use the service. They should know what time of month a customer is most likely to make a mobile deposit, and have an idea of how much it will be for. Anything outside of those normal patterns should go through some extra verification.

Mobile Payment App Risks?
Wes, you have summarized the ongoing conundrum banks face -- how to balance the access, convenience, speed and real-time resolution that customers demand with the need for security and control in an environment where fraudsters and criminals are increasingly aggressive and sophisticated. Your recommendations reflect some of what I have heard from other industry figures -- that, if handled (and communicated) correctly, tighter/better security can be a differentiator and an aspect of customer service/engagement. After all, everyone offers mobile check deposit, if you can convey that yours is more secure without sacrificing convenience, that is a competitive advantage.
