Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

MINDWISE provides a real-time intelligence feed via our secure API. We aim to make integration with our API a secure, seamless process. Our API is not limited to banking end-users but is specifically relevant when considering the enormous impact the results will have (we collect data regardless of who is signed up, both for statistical analysis internally and for presentation purposes). The MINDWISE API complies with all necessary PCI DCSS standards and only the client can access the feed with a secure key exchange protocol.

Can we adjust the feed criteria?

As the feed is real-time, any adjustments you make will be instantly reflected in the next delivery. The feed makes it easy to filter certain datasets for human analysis and others for automated mitigation either using your existing security infrastrure. For banking end-users, we simply require a list of all BINs issued by the bank in question (and any extra search terms, emails, etc) to begin feeding you the data you need to stop fraud dead in its tracks.

Where does the data come from?

Aside from monitoring hundreds of cyber-criminal marketplaces, MINDWISE has a well-placed network of human intelligence assets who can provide invaluable insight into the biggest threats to your business infrastructure. For instance, synthetic identity theft- one of the largest growing sources of fraud for banks and businesss alike can be mitigated using information gleaned from our assets along with corroborating data sources.

Is there any documentation and support?

Yes. Our API is well-documented and we work closely with clients to ensure they get the most out of our services. As a small company, we can provide you with the personal service that other corporate giants can’t. We won’t simply provide you an API key and have you work out the rest.
