About this paper
Despite improved security, fraud is still a major concern in the banking industry. This is due to elaborate cybercrimes like international money mule operations as well as the use of new mobile devices like smartphones. The growth in cybercrime – encompassing mobile, online and ACH transactions – puts analytics front and center at helping banks stay ahead of fraudsters. This paper illustrates why using multiple analytical approaches across all organizational transactions helps banks achieve better monitoring of fraudulent activities and more accurate customer behavior profiles. As a result, banks can keep customers safe from financial harm while protecting their own reputations.
