I’m pleased to announce that my eBook is available for download through O’Reilly.
Max Levchin calls it “A practical, no-nonsense guide to best practices of risk management in payments.”
What is this book about?
For years, I’ve been asked various questions by people starting this own risk teams, and I felt like I was repeating the basic stuff. So early this year I sat down to write the essence of what I’d tell all of these managers and their managers through the first 12-18 months of operation – including tips on hiring, infrastructure and modeling. This books sums it all up in a neat introduction to the theory and practice of risk management from online payments, based on my experience in companies like FraudSciences, PayPal, Analyzd, Klarna and more. I hope you’ll find it a helpful read.
