Fremont, CA: The emerging COVID-19 pandemic has caused a great deal of discomfort in the banking world. As an industry highly dependent on manual labor, it took a tremendous amount of time to acclimate to the digital world. Security was one of the many things they had to consider when they first walked into a fully digital business model. The fight against fraud and financial crime was key.

The banking sector, which is considered to be the backbone of the economy, needs to keep going regardless of the crisis. Other growing sectors rely on them to reach out and pull them out of such unpredictable crises. The introduction of the digital format would result in the collection of a vast volume of financial data and track records of different organizations and consumers in a digital format. This centralized, wide variety of data will continue to be at the risk of fraudsters and cyber criminals.

The Role of Technology in Fighting Fraud and Crimes

Technology, particularly in the form of artificial intelligence, blockchain and machine learning, is a bonus in the fight against fraud and cybercrime. The learning methodology or algorithms are most useful for predicting these attacks by searching for trends that raise suspicion. In addition, these algorithms help to avoid unauthorized transactions and alert the device to a wide range of cyber attacks. These algorithms can analyze a number of trends and predict all combinations of attacks, thereby allowing financial organizations to build a risk reduction and management strategy.

AI algorithms are used to map credit card applications and identify illicit transactions or shadowy transfers of money. With the help of their bank data, the algorithm can track fraudsters and record the money trail that exposes the criminals. Artificial Intelligence is used to track the credit and debit activities of the accounts and warn the unnatural balance of accounts or expenditure records. Both the Intrusion Detection System and the Intrusion Prevention Systems are now automated using AI, which has led to a substantial decrease in human error vulnerabilities.
