The types of financial crime impacting financial institutions (FIs) have changed with the pandemic. Social- and cyber- engineered first party fraud are on the rise and FIs see that money muling is the top four fastest growing fraud typology in APAC 2020/21.
Two key challenges in combatting hybrid first party fraud effectively:
1-The ability to automate proactive learning and adaptation in fraud detection in order to discover new behavioral patterns and missed fraud
2-Drill down, validate and identify anomalies on submitted identity information, by accessing data intelligence such as endpoint security, identity association, device fingerprinting, email validation, geolocation, alternative credit scoring, and phone assessment.
