2:45 – 3:45 Alternatives for Managing Commercial Payments Risk
While online criminals are leveraging all aspects of technology to commit payments fraud, a disciplined approach to utilizing operational controls can mitigate the risk posed by sophisticated criminal schemes. A rigorous approach to managing payments activity (e.g., dual-control measures, daily reconciliation, etc.) and the use of available technology (e.g., positive-pay, debit blocks, etc.) serve as the foundation of an effective defense to protect the interests of both banks and their business customers. This panel will examine the critical partnership between banks and businesses needed to ensure that best practices/technology for managing payments risk are utilized.
