Financial Crime and Digital Transformation

Combating Fraud with Machine Learning: A Feedzai Workshop

Prague, September 12, 2019


Digital transformation is a top priority for banking executives across the world. But how do you deal with growing security demands on customer and compliance side, while offering new forms of digital banking?

Join an exclusive workshop session featuring a panel of industry experts and a workshop on how to use AI in your own business for risk management. All of this will be part of a broader discussion on how AI is playing a larger role in the biggest banking revolution ever seen.

Who is this event for?

Risk Management, Fraud and Compliance professionals, IT and business leaders from financial institutions.

Key Topics

  • The latest trends in financial crime, including fraud patterns and typologies of money laundering
  • New technology tools and trends, and their impact on fighting fraud and financial crime
  • How to thrive in the face of increased regulation (such as PSD2, AML 5th directive, and more)
  • Data management, data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning for digital transformation

Challenges or threats?

Banks (and other financial institutions) in Europe are facing many new challenges lately. 5th directive on AML, about to come into force in January 2020, PSD2, the rapid and unending succession of innovations in financial services. Transfer of clients to digital channels. Branches being closed by banks all over Europe.

Regulators pose a big challenge to banks with the new AML-related 5th directive, which also addresses crypto currencies, prepaid cards and end user benefits (and brings new heavy fines for KYC / AML / sanction regulatory breaches…(those fines already reached 26 bn USD in the last 10 years).

Clients pressure banks on innovation, speed (real-time payments, speed of approvals and new customer identification), and of course customer expect friendly customer-centric solutions.

Competition is in the meantime getting bolder and stronger – in addition to FinTechs, which have learned to provide new financial services to clients, often without a banking licence, the BigTechs (Facebook, Amazon, Google, Apple) are also entering the field of financial services. These innovations are disrupting the markets and putting pressure on traditional service providers just like Uber did with taxi services. Who does not innovate, may not have any future…

In this workshop, we’ll cover all these topics and certainly many more. We’ll discuss new revolutionary possibilities of data analytics, machine learning and artificial intelligence in combating fraud and improving regulatory compliance. However, we’ll also explore, how experience with these new technologies can benefit other functions of the bank and perhaps help uncover new business opportunities.
