Fighting fraud in the new payments arena

Achieving bullet-proof security in e-payments: levelling up counter-fraud strategies for banks & corporate clients


16 September | 4:20pm CDT | The Westin Chicago River North, Chicago

Today’s payment ecosystem is evolving rapidly. Banks are not only faced with the need to support a higher volume of digital payments and prepare for instant payments roll-out, but also combat increasingly innovative fraudsters looking to exploit weak links. As technology, particularly AI, grows more sophisticated, so do criminals; relying on legacy counter fraud systems and processes no longer cuts it. In the digital era, signatory rights have become too easy to circumvent, while banking details shared via emails or PDFs are easily forged – current processes are simply inadequate to fight payment fraud. This roundtable will discuss how banks can navigate increasingly sophisticated fraud in e-payments, as well as strategies to ensure bulletproof security and robust verification / authentication within the new payments ecosystem.

Attend to gain insights on:

  • How to move beyond legacy approaches to counter fraud and ensure robust verification
  • How to overcome the lack of visibility when verifying payment transactions
  • Practical steps to go beyond just credentials and signatory rights in the digital era
  • From deepfakes to synthetic reality: how to stay ahead of fraudsters in an AI world
