“Ensuring the Proper Wiring for the Future of Fraud”
ORLANDO, FL – March 7, 2019 – Argos Risk, an industry leader of Third-Party Risk Intelligence (TPRI) solutions, joined panel moderator Avery Miller of Capital One, Bob Michaud, Chief Security Officer of Q2eBanking, and Roy Dotson, Special Agent of the U.S. Secret Service at ePayConnect 2019 this past week in Orlando, FL.
“The panel focused on strategic and tactical elements financial institutions need to consider and implement in order to prepare to mitigate the risks inherent with a real-time, 24x7 payments universe,” said Kevin Sasser, Director of Sales and Strategic Initiatives of Argos Risk. Topics ranging from business email compromise, ATM jackpotting, the latest in cyber-attacks, and best practices for managing a strategic risk management mindset all were associated with effective risk and fraud mitigation strategies.
Their discussion, related to commercial third-parties and payments origination summarized the key to risk mitigation in a world of real-time payments that manual, outdated risk mitigation practices will be an immediate red flag in future payments-related examinations; identifying and verifying account ownership is essential; risk-based customer profiles, with associated risk limits, are imperative to fraud prevention; and in terms of cyber-attacks, the panelists shared the fraudsters are now leveraging bots to organize “slow and steady” attacks.
