Increasing Fraud Volume and Types

There was near unanimous consensus among industry experts regarding the anticipated uptick in fraud, with 87% predicting an increase. The drivers behind the rise in fraud include the role of innovative technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), the emergence of Fraud-as-a-Service (FaaS), the demand for fast, frictionless transactions and growing economic pressures. 

Automating fraud detection through AI and machine learning can enhance fraud prevention efforts’ efficiency, precision and safety.

AI’s Dual Role in Fraud Dynamics

AI is expected to take center stage in 2024, both as a tool for fraudsters and as a means of defense. It facilitates more sophisticated fraud threats, such as automated attacks and deepfake technology, which means businesses must adopt equally advanced anti-fraud solutions to counter these attacks. 

AI-powered anti-fraud solutions like SEON offer efficient, real-time fraud detection and transparent decision-making through whitebox machine learning. This approach minimizes manual reviews and enhances risk management, ensuring secure and trustworthy customer experiences.

Fraud Types and Prevention Strategies

Predictions for 2024 suggest a continued increase in phishing, synthetic fraud, identity theft, account takeovers and money laundering. As a result, many SEON customers are planning to enhance their anti-fraud measures. 

Common challenges around investing in anti-fraud solutions include cost and integration concerns. Mapping the existing cost of fraud against projected fraud volumes and implementing API-first solutions with access to a team of experts facilitating deployment can help overcome these obstacles. 

SEON’s Perspective on Future Fraud Trends

SEON goes beyond the traditional rule-based systems and offers flexible machine learning models with feedback loops for more intelligent and highly automated fraud detection. 

Despite the move toward technology, human intelligence remains crucial: balanced integration of machine learning and human insight to enhance accuracy and maintain necessary oversight in fraud prevention efforts is the key to success.
