These programs will focus on practical information you need to know. Don't miss this opportunity to get your questions answered.

Account Takeover Fraud (ATO) is a growing problem in the banking industry. Often associated with Identity Theft, ATO Fraud occurs when a third-party commandeers a customer's account, typically moving funds out to another institution or individual through various channels. ATO Fraud is on the rise. The presenter will acquaint participants with the various aspects of the growing threat of account takeover, and how to effectively combat it.

This Briefing will focus on:

  • The greatest threat from ATO Fraud
  • Why a fraudster's deposit to a customer's compromised account is a part of their tactics, and what that means to the institution
  • The latest trends used by fraudsters to accomplish ATO fraud
  • How social engineering remains to be such an effective tactic for fraudsters
  • Today's best practices in combatting ATO fraud
  • The level of interest regulators presently have in the ATO problem
