Cross-Channel Risk Austin

Risk, fraud, potential losses and strict regulations are common to all payment channels. Failure to understand the inherent risks, fraud potential and compliance requirements of each system can result in financial losses, lost customers, a tarnished reputation and violations of state and federal regulations.

Building a strong foundation for detecting and mitigating risk and fraud begins with an understanding of the four major payment channels, ACH, Check, Card and Wire, and their common and unique risks. Federal guidance requires financial institutions and other organizations to understand risk categories and develop sound business practices to minimize exposure.
