About Us

Today, we are facing the challenge of rebuilding the nation’s financial system. Understandably, most banks and other financial institutions are scrutinizing every expense and eliminating those that do not promise to increase revenue streams.

But white collar criminals - be they small-time 
crooks or international terrorist financiers - are taking advantage of this opportunity to further entrench themselves in the banking infrastructure, positioning themselves for the next round of account fraud, on-line fraud, check fraud, payments fraud and other financial crimes.
We must not lose focus on the constantly changing face of financial institution fraud.

Aggressive, cross-channel, cross-enterprise 
Fraud Management for all financial institutions is more important than ever before.
