Together, they will review groundbreaking results from the 2010 Business Banking Trust Study, the first comprehensive study that exposes the scope of online banking fraud attacks against businesses, how businesses’ perceptions of online banking security affects their relationships with banks, and the impact this has on banks’ bottom lines.

Among other study findings that will be revealed during the webinar, 40 percent of businesses that experience fraud move some or all their business banking accounts elsewhere. More than half report experiencing a fraud attack in the past year, and in 80 percent of fraud cases, banks fail to detect fraudulent activity prior to a transaction. The webinar will provide detailed explanations of how cyber criminals have been able to bypass banks’ existing security measures to commit schemes such as wire and ACH fraud. Attendees will learn how proactive solutions such as behavioral account modeling and predictive analytics can successfully thwart these fraud attempts before money transfer occurs.
The webinar will also be broadcast on Wednesday, March 31 at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
