FICO (NYSE:FICO) alerted chiefs of leading Asian banks to the growing threat of enterprise fraud at its annual Fraud Forum in Manila this month. FICO urged the bankers to adopt the latest operational and analytic techniques to fight fraud across such emerging threat vectors as demand deposit accounts, mobile channels, application fraud and merchant fraud, as the region shifts to a post-EMV chip landscape.
FICO estimates that fraud in Asia Pacific costs in excess of US$350 million each year and is growing at an annual rate of 20-25%. Closing loopholes for criminals while delivering services that minimize customer inconvenience remains a key concern for banks. Mobile and online fraud, specifically card not present (CNP) transactions, continue to present a challenge, especially in markets that have secured traditional card transactions with EMV chips and pins.
