Payments Fraud: Detect and Prevent Check, ACH and P-Card Schemes

Course Description:

This training program will examine vendor/billing schemes that exploit payments process control weaknesses; latest electronic payments schemes (ACH hijacking, spear-phishing, social engineering); check counterfeiting, forgery and tampering schemes to be aware of; and, detecting common external payments schemes versus internal attacks.

 

Why Should You Attend?

Until recently, paying vendors was a simple matter of processing an invoice and issuing a check. No longer. Ongoing advances in technology, credit card, purchasing card (P-card), ACH and wire transfer require advanced payment techniques. And with that trend, unfortunately, are coming new opportunities for fraudsters to steal from your organization.

This is a fast-changing threat matrix. The Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) estimates that over 73% of all organizations are targets of payments fraud. While not all attacks result in fraud-related losses, this statistic alone confirms that criminals are as aggressive as ever in attempting to misappropriate funds via the various forms of payments fraud.

This webinar will focus on how all this means that organizations must stay informed about new and existing payment schemes on an ongoing basis. The risk of failing to do so is loss of massive amounts of customer credit card data, exposure to new forms of check fraud and costly new techniques for having your ACH and wire transfer account(s) hijacked by sophisticated cyber-criminals as well as your own employees.
