The need to focus on fraud management
Over the last decade the banking system has been under strain, the pressure to develop and lend more money with ambitious growth targets and lax controls culminated with the global banking collapse in 2008. Since then the focus around the world has been on creating a more resilient banking structure, building bank capital and implementing stricter credit controls.
In this drive to improve credit controls to protect the system from over zealous business acquisitions and poor investment strategies many of the other core banking disciplines have been pushed into the background and are perhaps in danger of being overlooked.
At their heart, traditionally banks and especially retail banks have been seen as safe and reliable places to deposit funds and as reliable organisations which can be trusted to manage financial matters for the ordinary person, business etc..
The banking collapse and the loss of confidence aligned with the technological innovations which are impacting the world today (including the convergence of mobile phones with computers, internet and the ability to access banks, undertake financial transactions etc.) make the world a more accessible place for people yet through open massive challenges to those seeking to protect their assets and provide a secure and safe way to manage financial affairs.
This conference draws together the expertise and experience across the retail banking industry together with the supporting businesses and those engaged in the deployment of new technology. We seek to ask and indeed help to answer some of the tough questions about how this can and should work and help those in the fraud and risk management business to see more clearly where the risks are, what solutions they may be able to use to address business concerns, how to make the case and thereby help the industry to be successful.
Join us in London for this conference and get to grips with the strategic challenges which face the financial world today.
