The payments fraud threat is up, will it ever stop?

Payments fraud is increasing and have reached record numbers the past few years. As it comes as no surprise that the payments industry is a main target for fraudsters the trend of ever-increasing fraud attempts, and actual losses is certainly disturbing. What is the reason for this? This session will highlight the latest trends based on the AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey reflecting what has happened in the past year. A particular focus will be on Business Email Compromise and how it is evolving. Completely preventing payments fraud is near impossible but in this session, we will also discuss some protective measures that can help prevent fraudsters to pick your organization as their target. Our speaker is Tom Hunt, Director of Treasury Services, Association for Financial Professionals.


This session will meet the following learning objectives:

  • Attendees will learn about how Business Email Compromise happens
  • Attendees will learn about the different types of payments fraud
  • Attendees will learn payments fraud control methods


 Participants can earn 1.0 CTP/CCM/FP&A credit or 1.0 CPE credit.
