Welcome to the NetGuardians and Temenos A-Z of Banking Fraud 2016 – a comprehensive e-book outlining the what, why and how of fraud; exploring the size of the issue, who commits it and, most importantly, what can be done.

Fraud is big business, costing the banking industry $67 billion per annum, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. It’s a problem no one can afford to ignore as firms struggle to recover from the global financial crisis and the world’s major economies teeter on the edge of recession. Most worrying of all, its incidence is escalating.

The most alarming statistic relates to insider fraud: in 70 % of cases, the crime was perpetrated by a bank employee. To put bankers on the right track, Temenos and NetGuardians have teamed up to compile this indispensable A-Z guide.

We hope it’s thought provoking – and not too worrying – that it stimulates discussion and provides reassurance for the future...
