  • Are you banking Marijuana-Related Businesses?
    Are you banking Marijuana-Related Businesses?
    Niki Pryor, Verafin Recorded: Jul 11 2019 24 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    FinCEN’s 2014 guidance outlines BSA obligations including SAR filing requirements for banking Marijuana-Related Businesses (MRBs). Whether or not your institution chooses to bank these businesses, it is imperative to your compliance program that you identify all potential MRBs in your customer base, even if they did not self-identify at account opening.

    To ensure you identify all potential MRBs in your existing customer base and complete the due diligence necessary to understand the nature of business — you likely have to rely on time-consuming manual reports and keyword searches.

    This 20-minute session details strategies to overcome the challenges of identifying high-risk customers for more effective due diligence, targeted monitoring, and enhanced reporting. Learn how Verafin uses artificial intelligence and open-source data in high-risk customer finders to automatically identify Marijuana-Related Businesses.

    Highlights of this 20-minute presentation:

    - Review of highlights from FinCEN Guidance, including red flags, due diligence requirements, and compliance obligations for Marijuana-Related Businesses.
    - Discussion on the challenges of identifying Marijuana-Related Business in your existing customer base, who did not self-identify at account opening.
    - Overview of the benefits of an Intelligent Segmentation approach to your high-risk customer management program with a focus on MRBs.
    - How to get alerted to Marijuana-Related Businesses and other high-risk customers in your existing customer base with Verafin’s high-risk-finder analysis.

  • Synthetic Identity Fraud: Unreal Identities Result in Real Fraud Losses
    Synthetic Identity Fraud: Unreal Identities Result in Real Fraud Losses
    Scott Peddle Recorded: Jul 4 2019 50 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    In this digital age, vast amounts of compromised customer information from data breaches and fraud scams is readily available for purchase on the dark web. To further their illicit schemes, fraudsters can use your customer’s personal and financial information to create fictional or partially fabricated identities in an emerging trend known as synthetic identity fraud.

    With combinations of fake and real identifying information, fraudsters use these synthetic identities to apply for new accounts, products or auto loans. Crime rings often utilize synthetic identities in large, ongoing financial fraud schemes, repeating these crimes at multiple institutions, exponentially increasing the potential for loss.

    Join us as we discuss the challenges facing financial institutions when combatting synthetic identity fraud in various forms of financial crime, such as loan fraud, deposit fraud, electronic transfer fraud, and new account fraud.

    In this presentation we will discuss:

    - The scale of synthetic identity fraud and how it relates to other financial crimes
    - Common ploys fraudsters use to commit synthetic identity fraud
    - Challenges facing financial institutions to mitigate fraud losses involving - synthetic identity fraud and other evasion methods
    - Real-life examples of fraud schemes and crime rings employing synthetic identity fraud and related illicit activities
    - Best practices and innovative approaches for fraud detection and investigation
  • Do You know How to Protect Your Customers from the Unknown?
    Do You know How to Protect Your Customers from the Unknown?
    Amiram Pinto, Product Manager, NICE Recorded: Jul 3 2019 32 mins
    Fraud is on the rise, and contact centers are a target. It's time to fight back. Be proactive and outsmart fraudsters with technology.
    The latest advances in machine learning techniques and analytics combined with biometrics capabilities takes contact center protection to a whole new level. Contact centers now have the ability to expose previously unsuspected fraudulent activities. That empowers them to not only prevent known fraudsters from attacking, but more impressively, expose new fraudsters that were operating "under the radar" for a long time. In the ongoing response to sophisticated fraud attacks, the creation of high-quality fraudster watchlists from historical recordings – and automatically populating and updating them – is a revolution in the fight against fraud

  • Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    John Hawkin, Verafin Recorded: Jun 27 2019 42 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    In order to protect themselves from evolving external threats, financial institutions continue to strengthen their fraud controls by deploying fraud detection solutions across a variety of channels. However, it is imperative that financial institutions do not overlook the threat from within.

    Financial institutions are especially vulnerable to employee fraud, as fraudsters within the organization have access to large amounts of personal identification information and financial transactional data, along with access to customer accounts. While these schemes can add up to significant fraud losses for financial institutions and their customers, they can also enable other illicit activity and pose significant compliance concerns.

    Join us for this insightful presentation, as we discuss the financial and reputational risks, as well as the potential compliance concerns of employee fraud. Learn the tactics used by internal bad actors and best practices to mitigate losses, including how appropriate monitoring of both employee access logs and transactional activity can alert institutions to fraudulent activity by employees.

    In this educational presentation, you will learn:
    - The scale of the crime of employee fraud, including the potential for losses and compliance considerations
    - Review tactics internal bad actors use to commit fraud against financial institutions
    - Best practices to mitigate losses and protect your institution from internal threats, - including appropriate monitoring and fraud controls

    While the set of circumstances surrounding the implosion of Carillion is unlikely to be replicated exactly elsewhere, it is important that we assess how closely Carillion’s modus operandi fits to other leading U.K. contractors.

    Following the launch of the popular guide, Deconstructing Carillion, Euromoney Learning has invited the highly esteemed author – Adrian Grant – to expand on some of the key issues and compare Carillion with other similar cases.

  • Real-Time Payments in The United States: A game of inches
    Real-Time Payments in The United States: A game of inches
    InstaPay, Accenture, Citizens Bank, Avidia Bank Recorded: Jun 13 2019 59 mins
    With over 10,000 financial institutions, 21 million business payers, and an $18 trillion economy, the U.S. is world's largest and most complex marketplace for payment services. Compared with nations where a relatively small number of banks dominate the entire financial system, any plan for Real-Time Payments (RTP) in the U.S. must consider the concerns of an exceptionally large and diverse set of stakeholders.

    Recognising the need to remain globally competitive – and to be able to connect with RTP systems around the world, The Federal Reserve’s Faster Payments task force set goals for a new payments system that included near-instantaneous transactions. The Clearing House launched RTP in November 2017, to meet these goals. Other instant payments solutions exist in the U.S. such as PayPal’s Venmo and Early Warning’s Zelle, but how is the market moving towards the Federal Reserve’s 2020 deadline for ubiquitous instant payments? Without any top-down mandates, encouraging innovation via a market-driven approach relying on voluntary collaboration among payment services and stakeholders can be a challenge. How are payments players reacting?

    Overlay services – social media integration, instant loans, request for payments – and open APIs (Application Program Interfaces) provide innovations that encourage consumers and businesses to use real-time payments. How is the U.S. moving forward with these innovations?

    What’s the next flashpoint in the US-China trade war?
    Matthew Thomas, Asia Bureau Chief, Euromoney Institutional Investor Recorded: Jun 12 2019 37 mins
    The trade war between the United States and China reignited in May, when the US government increased tariffs on Chinese goods and began to target individual companies. With so much uncertainty about the possible economic outcomes, Euromoney's latest webinar drew on two of Standard Chartered's experts on the subject to find out which sectors are most exposed and ask: is anywhere safe for global investors?

    After multiple rounds of trade talks and indications of a deal from both sides, the trade war between the US and China is back on. It’s sensible to ask, is the targeting of Chinese companies through the Entity List just a bargaining chip in the wider negotiation and if so, will such hardball actually bring Chinese negotiators to the table?

    Who is in the line of fire?
    As one of our experts comments, anyone who has confidence of what to come is fooling themselves. Risk planners, treasurers and business owners are all wondering: who is most exposed to the trade war? How are they adjusting their business models to reduce their exposure? Where might there be dangerous links in supply chains? Which sectors have less flexibility – and do they have any way to hedge their risks?

    During this webinar we try to answer those questions while considering the disruption of global supply chains by this trade war, the dramatic influence of sentiment on the markets and how CFOs and treasurers can gather the right information to plot sensible courses for their businesses at a time when no deal seems truly stable.

    Learn How Dirty Data can increase Profitability at Banks
    Anand Subramaniam, Principal Architect AI & ML Practice, Aspire Systems Aug 20 2019 1:30 pm UTC 60 mins
    Figuring out how dirty data can be converted into useful insights can be a pain. Information about your customers can be easily retrieved if you have correct and actionable data that can be worked on. AI can only do wonders if this is the case. Banks that segment their customers’ data using AI have increased their revenue up to 30%. But let’s take a step back and think – when was the last time you checked for data accuracy. Or how sure are you that the data you’ve entered into your AI algorithm is correct? To predict what your banking customers are looking for, you need to have the data cleaned and all set for AI initiatives to succeed.

    In this webinar, you will learn

    • How to get the data cleaned up?
    • How to use them to get better insights?
    • How to use insights to improve your ROI?


    Speaker - Anand Subramaniam, the Head of AI Practice at Aspire Systems

    Join us on a Tuesday morning, for an hour, discussing vital topics that can place you ahead in your data transformation journey.
  • The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    VentureBeat Sep 17 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It’s do or die time: According to Gartner, the global business value from AI leapt by 70 percent last year, to $1.2 trillion, and it will triple to $3.9 trillion in 2022. So enterprises interested in getting on the AI train should jump now -- before you lose some major competitive advantages.

    Of course, the biggest challenge for enterprise companies is figuring out the build versus buy question. There’s the build-in-house model of AI implementation, with open-source toolkits and expensive, but essential new hires. The number of startups offering full-service consultation, with set-up and service is proliferating, but who do you choose, and what do you pay for? And somewhere in between those options there’s the artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) approach — and again, the field of vendors is crowded with options.

    There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer — but there are experts with real insight into how to identify your business needs, and where to get started implementing AI in the most cost-effective, profitable way possible for your enterprise. To get up front and personal with pros in the trenches now, register now for this VB Live event!

    You'll learn:
    *How to identify your AI needs
    *How to identify your decision criteria
    *The pros and cons of build and buy, and the best situations for each
    *How to get a handle on the true costs of both build and buy
