An Anti-Fraud solution for effectively managing the anti-fraud lifecycle.
Fraudulent activity is on the increase due to the current economic crisis and trends indicate it will continue to affect the international financial sector in the coming years. The impact of fraudulent activity can cause serious operational, reputational and legal issues to a financial institution. Areas such as credit cards, transactions over the Internet and insurance claims are some examples affected on a daily basis by fraud attacks originating from inside the organization or from external sources. In both cases, fraudsters exploit possible flaws of the audit organization and utilize the latest technology, while they continuously invent new methods and techniques to evade established detection mechanisms. It is therefore necessary to continuously evaluate and develop the processes established to prevent and tackle fraudulent activity, focusing on the entire lifecycle management of fraud, namely the deterrence, prevention, detection, mitigation, analysis, policy, investigation and ultimately prosecution stages.
