While many treasurers hope they are well prepared to prevent fraud from occurring, every successful fraud attempt exposes weak controls and detection methods that serve as a learning opportunity for others.

This guide offers excellent insight into the magnitude of fraud threats, ranging from internal collaborative attempts to external hacks and ransomware schemes. Topics in this guide include:

 

  • Key findings and results from the 2017 AFP Payments Fraud and Control Survey

  • Implementing consistent controls across payments and bank accounts, regardless of type, geography or “who” made the request

  • UserID and password are not reliable to protect a system. Personal and business systems need more stringent protections, such as combinations of two-factor authentication, IP filtering, single sign on (SSO) and more

  • Finding ways to screen payments against lists and custom rules to filter out suspicious activity before it goes to the bank
