The banking and financial services industry is facing an acute problem of fraud. The problem is global and no country is fully protected.

Just prior to Covid-19’s emergence, experts pegged the total annual global cost of fraud at $5.1 trillion.

Total gross fraud losses for South African issued cards for instance increased by 20.5% from 2018 (R890. 3 million), to 2019 (R1. 07 billion) Financial institutions today are in a position where they can (and should) look back and re-evaluate their risk profiles.

The conference will seek to address the fraud challenges faced by banking and financial institutions, highlighting the methodologies and precautions organisations need to take to minimise its level of risk and will also provide insights into incident response.

The event will incorporate a relevant industry related programme which will include topics that will unpack the shifting fraud landscape, convergence of cyber security, market trends & drivers, next generation fraud technologies, payments & e-commerce, fraud analytics, cybercrime and much more…

The programme will assemble more than 20 industry-leading speakers that will share knowledge and insights on why the banking and financial services in Southern Africa should adapt to the fast-changing fraud landscape.

The conference targets professionals from banks, insurance companies, service providers, government and consultancies.

We invite potential sponsors to join us at the conference, so as to once again create the ideal platform for information and knowledge sharing. Involvement will afford sponsors, exhibitors, delegates and speakers excellent networking opportunities.
