Offers insights into how a multi-layered approach can help combat fraud

MIAMI – August 29, 2012Compass Plus, an international provider of retail banking software and electronic payments systems to financial institutions, has released a white paper, The Rise and Fall of a Fraudulent Transaction, which looks at the evolution of financial services and how financial institutions must deploy multiple layers of protection in order to stay ahead of the fraudsters.

According to the paper, the financial services sector has undergone a transformation in the last 10 years with customers no longer needing to visit their bank – Internet, mobile and self-service kiosks, including ATMs, now provide access to services at all times. This shift to online banking, e-commerce and mobile wallets has presented a new range of opportunities for criminals and fraud has become a more pervasive global issue.

When it comes to fraud, financial institutions have to bear a number of hidden costs, including loss of customer confidence and damage to their brand and integrity. In the whitepaper, Compass Plus outlines the various types of fraud that are prevalent today and the numerous layers of protection that can be used to combat them.

“Financial institutions are in a constant race to protect themselves and their customers from fraud,” said Maria Nottingham, chief marketing officer at Compass Plus. “This white paper demonstrates how the integrated deployment of anti-fraud measures, as well as proactive and reactive data management and analysis, can be powerful weapons in the prediction, prevention and control of fraudulent behaviours.”
