Compliance: the big issues uncovered
Fraud prevention and detection, as well as the impact of evolving technology and faster payments on financial crime compliance are just some of the topics up for discussion this week.
Fraud is moving from data theft to payment fraud – and financial institutions and payment infrastructures are the new targets. Cyber attackers are innovative and now work with subtlety and sophistication. They cover their tracks and exploit the fact that payments move faster than ever. So, with cybercrime high on everyone’s agenda, we will be addressing this issue in several sessions.
We will also be launching SWIFT Payment Controls, our new tool for fraud prevention and detection, which is an integral part of SWIFT’s Customer Security Programme. This tool will help customers to monitor and protect their core payments, by flagging and responding to fast-moving, suspect transactions efficiently. In the event of an attack, banks require separate controls to check and stop payments and this in-network solution provides just that. This is a significant development and a major source of defence for customers.
SWIFT Payment Controls has been developed in collaboration with 14 institutions, allowing us to develop the tool around features requested by the SWIFT community.
