AI - what do we do differently at NetGuardians ?

The world of fraud prevention in banking institutions has always been largely based on rules.
Bankers and their engineers were integrating rules engines on the banking information system to prevent or detect most common fraud patterns.
And for quite a long time, this was sufficient.

But today we are experiencing a change of society, a new industrial revolution.
Today, following the first iPhone and the later mobile internet explosion, people are interconnected all the time, everywhere and for all kind of use.
This is the digital era and the digitization of means and behaviours forces corporations to transform their business model.

As a consequence, banking institutions are going massively online and digital first. Both the bank users and customers have evolved their behaviours with the new means offered by the digital era.
And the problem is:
How do you want to protect your customer's assets with rules at a time when, for instance, people connect to their swiss ebanking platform from New York to pay for a holiday house rental in Morocco? How would you want to define rules to detect frauds when there are almost as many different behaviours as there are customers?

Artificial Intelligence for Banking Fraud Prevention

In this article, I intend to present my company's - NetGuardians - approach when it comes to deploying Artificial Intelligence techniques towards better fraud detection and prevention.
This article is inspired from various presentations I gave on the topic in various occasions that synthesize our experience in regards to how these technologies were initially triggering a lot of skepticism and condescension and how it turns our that they are now really mandatory to efficiently prevent fraud in financial institutions, due to the rise of fraud costs, the maturity of cybercriminals and the complexity of attacks.


Here financial fraud is considered at the broad scale, both internal fraud, when employees divert funds from their employer and external fraud in all its forms, from sophisticated network penetration schemes to credit card theft.
I don't have the pretension to present an absolute or global overview. Instead, I would want to present things from the perspective of NetGuardians, from our own experience in regards to the problems encountered by our customers and the how Artificial Intelligence helped us solve these problems.
