Project Futures report – The Fight Against Fraud and Financial Crime

The Project Futures workshop at Glaziers Hall, London Bridge in December 2019 focused on the case for greater investment in technology and the centralisation and consolidation of department responsibilities in order to improve the fight against fraud and financial crime.

The discussion focused on the following themes:

• Management of risk
• Fraud prevention
• Money laundering compliance
• KYC checking
• Cyber security defence

The workshop was structured around four interactive breakout sessions:

• The advantages and disadvantages of centralisation and consolidation
• The market trends and impact
• The opportunities, barriers and challenges
• Regulatory factors, technology and innovation

This report is part of a series produced by the The Payments Association. It highlights the contents of the discussions, the insights derived and the conclusions drawn. These highlight the direction of travel for the payments industry as it develops and how the ecosystem may change in the light of new technologies and innovations.

Thank you to the Project Benefactor, FICO, the workshop moderator and report author, Mark McMurtrie, Director of Payments Consultancy Ltd and to the 15 workshop participants for their contributions to this insightful workshop

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
