What you'll learn

  • Explore AI models and operational techniques for crime detection and interdiction in the banking industry


Criminal attacks on banks are staggering in scale and relentless in pace. From credit card fraud to money laundering to account takeovers and insider fraud, financial criminals relentlessly devise new attacks that all too often slip past banks’ defenses undetected. Despite the best efforts of skilled teams focused on the problems, financial crimes remain a major ongoing cost to businesses in banking.

Analytic techniques leveraging artificial intelligence can result in dramatic improvements in crime detection and interdiction across diverse attack modalities. Will Griffith and Ben MacKenzie share AI models and operational techniques they’ve used with major banking clients to substantially strengthen and accelerate their responses to criminal attacks.

Topics include:

  • Effective applications of AI to thwarting financial crime in the banking industry
  • Necessary considerations to keep AI models compliant with relevant regulations
  • Approaches to integrating AI models with legacy analytics and rules platforms

This session is sponsored by Teradata.
