- India is amongst the countries that have been at the receiving end on account of card frauds; hence there is an urgent need to adopt the requisite frameworks and tools.
- New channels of delivery in banking have brought in newer avenues for perpetrating fraud; Banks now have to deal with technology related frauds on top of traditional fraud types such as loan frauds.
- In technology related frauds, retail customer are the most affected; for the bank even though the amounts involved may be small, there is a lot reputational risk involved.
- Effective fraud detection and prevention can happen only when a holistic approach is adopted by organizations; the approach should involve a combination of bringing about an anti-fraud culture, implementing real-time/periodic fraud monitoring systems and rolling out appropriate monitoring and reporting mechanisms, across the organization.
- Most of the organizations have siloed systems to manage transactional activities. There is an urgent need for an integrated, multi-channel, real time fraud detection engine for fraud deterrence.
