Building effective fraud defences

7 months ago

In response to Paul Lewis, presenter at BBC’s Money Box, on his most recent article for the Financial Times 'Banks must act to control fraud epidemic', Abe Smith, CEO at Paymentology, gives his view on what are some of the steps banks can take to prevent fraud.  

Many banks have not kept pace with rapid digitisation that has changed the way customers pay for goods and services. Criminals are outstripping legacy banks and card fraud losses are set to rise from $32bn in 2020 to $47bn by 2027.

The good news is that banks can significantly ramp up their fraud prevention controls through advanced analytics at the payment processor level. AI can let banks spot suspicious transactions at the point of transaction.

With a technology-first approach, banks can improve detection of unusual behaviours that fall outside of expected customer activity profiles and build more effective fraud defences. They can also use the same technology to drive more customer-centric banking services that are fit for the modern age.
