Why Should You Attend:

Fraudsters continue to infiltrate the ACH Network at the cost of U.S. businesses and financial institutions across the country. Trends show that criminals have once again set their sights on small to mid-sized businesses, payroll processors (including CPA firms), and small financial institutions. Add in everyday occurrences like embezzlement, and it’s no wonder ACH fraud is so persistent.

Regardless of how relentless these forms of fraud are, so much of today’s fraud can be detected and managed before they cause losses, if you know what to look for.

This 90-minute, information packed session will identify four common types of fraud perpetrated through the ACH Network: social engineering, account takeover, advance fee frauds, and embezzlement. More importantly, it will explore how to detect these frauds and methods to manage the risk at your organization.

Whether you are a financial institution seeking to understand these frauds and options under the ACH Rules, or a business who desires a better understanding of how to protect your assets, this session will cover each fraud from various perspectives, flexing your ability to deflect these frauds and better understand the process if fraud does occur.
