The blurred lines of liability – how can all players in the digital ecosystem work together to put a stop to financial fraud?

January 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

The ubiquitous adoption of digital technologies and a huge uplift in e-commerce has resulted in unprecedented levels of online financial fraud. The UK alone saw a 71% increase from 2020 to 2021 with £583 million in APP fraud losses, while the US experienced a 70% increase in fraud losses within a year, totalling at $5.8 billion. The pressure to safeguard consumers and develop robust cross-sector fraud prevention strategies is mounting. So, how can banks and big tech work together to tackle this issue and take liability for the part they play in online fraud? Could the ‘’Polluter Pays’’ principle balance the liability scales?  What other models would acknowledge the complexity of the digital landscape and offer fraud protection strategy fit for the digital future?
