Why Businesses Need To Put Fraud Prevention Front And Centre

If Fraudsters are anything, they are opportunists. Once the first new stories about COVID-19 started running, it wasn’t long until they were joined by tales of fraudsters selling face masks and hand sanitiser, asking panicked customers to transfer money and then disappearing without a trace.  And it’s not the first time we’ve seen this. Fraudsters are notoriously wise to periods of heightened sensitivity and uncertainty, often preying on the vulnerable. The 2008 financial crisis saw an increase in email-based phishing scams and a decade’s worth of technological advancements means that Fraud remains a many-headed beast.  Add into the mix a change in working styles and environments, and many businesses are more exposed to potential security breaches than they have been in years. Now, more than ever, companies need to make sure their Data is well protected and secure. THE FIRST LINE OF DEFENCE If you’re part of, or leading, a Fraud Prevention team, there are a number of ways you can support your business and keep on top of the situation. Here are just a few: Increase and update your investigation capacity. This team are the front line of your business’ Fraud defence team, interacting with customers daily and spotting new scams. During an uncertain period, retention and team stability is key. These are the people that understand the day-to-day Fraud challenges you face and will be essential in fighting any future challenges.  Sharing Fraud Prevention knowledge is key. Throughout this crisis, trends will be evolving quickly and working collaboratively across teams, and even other businesses, is the best way to combat this. We consistently hear from Fraud Managers that the key to beating Fraud is to share information and knowledge. Despite this, there is always a hesitation amongst companies to admit that they have been a victim to an attack. Perhaps now is the time to change this. Invest in Machine Learning and real time updates for your Fraud defences. Fraud technology has moved on from script writing in SQL and rule changes. Businesses need a real time reactive response and now is an important time to be embracing new technologies. There are a number AI-driven off the shelf packages available or, for a more bespoke solution, a Fraud Data Scientist can create something internally. Educate your team. It may seem simple, but the Fraud team can play a crucial role in minimising any potential risk from human-error. Educating employees on the risks they may face when working remotely, or what scams they need to look out for, is one of the most effective ways of fighting Fraud.  PREPARING YOUR BUSINESS Success in the fight against Fraud isn’t purely down to the group of individuals that make up the Fraud team. As a business, now is the time to be making decisions that can help you stay ahead of the Fraudsters. Here are some considerations: Consider investing in tech as an your immediate response. Not just to bolster your Fraud defences (although there are plenty of vendors offering AI-based solutions), but also technology for your employees to keep work as normal as possible such a sharing platforms, DevOps technology and video calling networks. One of the best ways to block some of the vulnerability loopholes fraudsters are trying to exploit is to keep working habits as close to normal as possible as you move to a remote solution. Be transparent with your customers. Consumers are being incredibly savvy and noting how businesses respond to the pandemic in a way that could have a big impact when normality returns. But they’re also being more empathetic and are willing to understand difficulties. For example, shopping delivery service Ocado were open and transparent when their system could not initially deal with demand. Having communicated the difficulties, worked through their issues and gone the extra mile to let customers know how they can be supported in this time, the received minimal backlash. There is an understanding that we’re all in this together. Finally, if you have the budget, continue to staff up - particularly in competitive fields such as Data Science. A lot of top Data professionals are currently at home and much more accessible than they have been in a long time. With a number of ways to remotely interview and onboard both permanent and contract staff, if you are able to get begin conversations with them now, you’ll have an edge in what will be a very competitive market come later in the year.  If you’re looking to take your next step in the world of Fraud, we may have a role for you, including a number of remote opportunities.  Or, if you’re looking to expand and build out your Fraud team, get in touch with one of expert consultants who will be able to advise on the best remote and long-term processes. 

What Does The Fourth Industrial Revolution Look Like?

We’re in the next stage of the fourth Industrial Revolution and technologies continue to merge. No longer is advancement as simple as adding “tech” to the end of a word - sorry Fintech, InsurTech, HRTech, and the rest. Now technologies stand together as each becomes a separate piece of how tech operates in the business world. AI and IoT have merged to become AIoT. Data is as much commodity as it is information to fuel business growth. Computer Vision partnered with AI is teaching computers to convert their ones and zeros to images humans take for granted.   In a word, it’s a transformative time for every industry and every industry is taking advantage of the benefits in one way or another. Smart manufacturing. Human Resources. Marketing. Even insurance has joined the party. But, with so many advancements, we thought we’d take a look at just the tip of the iceberg, starting with A, B, and C.  AI Meets IoT  We’ve all heard how AI and the Internet of Things (wearable and smart devices etc.) are being used in the Health sector. With the kind of real-time Data available, patients, insurers, and medical professionals can map out health plans based on wearable devices to track patient health and encourage preventative care.  Indeed, one insurance company is embracing these Data trends to ramp up the speed and efficiency of their data. Using Machine Learning and IoT sensors to develop an AI-based solution, customer information is used to match clients with the right policies tailored to their needs.  Car insurance is another industry to benefit. Insurers are able to collect real-time driving data which they can analyse to determine risk or offer discounted policies for good driving. This kind of information can also be used to revisit and reconstruct accident scenes to figure out what happened and who’s at fault.  Big Data, Big Money We’ve all heard the phrase ‘Data Is The New Oil’ by now, which I’m sure we can all agree, just means Data is a resource everybody wants and is willing to pay a lot for. But the differences between Data and Oil are two-fold; Data has the potential to be infinite, and it tells us about what oil cannot; the human experience.  Cloud technologies, edge hardware, and the IoT have helped shape the digitisation of objects, people, and organisations. From sensors to wearable devices, more and more data is being collected, allowing us to be more connected than ever before. It’s also providing more information to the tech giants than ever before. For example, Amazon’s Ring doorbell is logging every motion around it and can pinpoint the time to millisecond.   Add these technologies to Natural Language Processing (NLP) and watch the world around us draw value from and understand our Data like never before. The wave of Big Data value shows no signs of slowing down. Computer Vision in Business In the last few years, Computer Vision has been making great strides in the business world. Yet the Data required for processing power and memory can still be impacted by image quality. The opportunities  are alive with possibility and, from small businesses to enterprise solutions, Computer Vision has seen a variety of industries finding practical business uses.  Below are just a few additional areas Computer Vision is making its mark. Facial Recognition – providing surveillance and security systems in such areas as police work, payment portals, and retail stores.Digital Marketing – sorting and analysing online images to target ad campaigns to the right audiences.Financial Institutions –preventing fraud, allowing mobile deposits, analysing handwriting, and beyond. With the global market for fourth industry technologies predicted to be between $17.4 billion and $48.32 billion by 2023, now is the time to find your focus within the industry.  Ready to take the next step in your career? Whether you’re interested in AI, Big Data and Analytics, Computer Vision or more, we may have a role for you.
