5 Fraud Management platforms safeguarding banks in Europe
By Gloria Methri
The FinTech space has encountered a manifold rise in fraud and financial crime, particularly with the boom of financial technologies such as mobile banking, e-wallets, digital wallet payments, cross-border payments, and digital currencies.
Combatting online criminals requires progressively more powerful technology as fraudsters apply more sophisticated techniques, and the rise of artificial intelligence has only increased the number of tools in a criminal’s arsenal.
Scammers break anti-fraud systems to steal credit card details and personal information to use a victim’s online wallet and bank account. Phishing links are another way victims fall prey to and grant the attacker access to their devices, such as payment links.
To address this issue, FinTechs have created innovative solutions that help financial institutions and organisations to detect and prevent fraud. To better identify and mitigate potential risks, these solutions are supported by sophisticated algorithms, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and data analytics.
Here are five fraud management platforms safeguarding banks against financial crimes in Europe:
