Fraud Prevention in the Age of Big Data and AI, Philippines, 15 November 2018

EY and NetGuardians invite you to an exclusive cocktail event on 15th November 2018 at Peninsula Manila, Corner of Ayala and Makati Avenues, 1226 Makati City, Metro Manila, Republic of the Philippines


Indisputably, banking fraud is a growing threat committed not only by external fraudsters but internal employees as well. After all, cybercrime is a profitable business and therefore, expected to surge in the coming years. It is expected to reach US $6 trillion by 2021.

The critical question, therefore, facing all of us is, “Are We Prepared?” Prepared for detecting an attack before its actually carried out and prepared for thwarting it after its launched.

Disturbingly, 20-25% of the money stolen by fraudsters from banks is spent on research and development in order to find new ways of attack. The natural consequence of this is more sophisticated and novel attacks in future. Based on this reality, you can decide if you can afford to miss this session on banking fraud by NetGuardians.
