Are Financial Institutions Losing the Battle Against Fraud Prevention?

The explosive growth in digital transactions and real-time
payments have intensified fraud risks and caused financial
institutions to suffer skyrocketing costs and fraud-related losses. According to the Association of Certified

Fraud Examiners (ACFE), financial institutions now lose approximately 5% of their annual revenues to fraud. In 2020, financial institutions paid an average of $3.78 for every dollar lost to fraud, up from $3.35 in 2019. These figures are undoubtedly staggering, but the 
should come as no surprise. Most institutions continue to rely on human analysts and old rule-based systems that are inefficient and cannot effectively detect and prevent
increasingly sophisticated and complex fraud patterns.

With fraud risks set to evolve and intensify further in the years to come, financial institutions must innovate and continuously invest in intelligent technologies to ensure they stay one step ahead of fraudsters.
