Tools to tackle Payments Fraud

Detect and prevent new fraudulent payments patterns

The threat landscape for global payments has grown in reach, volume and complexity. Recent breaches across correspondent banking networks highlight the ever- increasing threat of payments crime and the particular vulnerabilities to SWIFT, Real-Time Gross Settlement and Wire payments. The adoption of instant payment schemes presents further fraud prevention challenges.

Truly effective Fraud Protection requires solutions that do not merely respond to past patterns of attack, but ones that deploy highly advanced predictive and anomaly aware technology – detecting and preventing new fraudulent payment patterns in real-time.

The Solution
The PelicanSecure Fraud Prevention solution uses Machine Learning Artificial Intelligence technology to analyse patterns of behaviour to identify and flag subtle anomalies that are indicative of fraud. Natural Language Processing disciplines are also utilised, capable of converting unstructured narrative fields into structured information –  with the ability to identify parties and purpose and perform profiling analysis.

Comprehensive Protection

A.I. Powered Fraud Prevention

Pelican’s AI based platform uses multiple techniques including rule based and AI machine learning to understand, predict and act in real time to detect fraud. This comprehensive hybrid approach incorporates additional Supervised, Unsupervised and Reinforced learning.

The sophisticated Rule Engine enables the quick incorporation of known fraud scenarios and provides a foundation of payments fraud protection.

Fraud Prevention features

  • Supervised Learning reinforces the rule engine – a powerful classification model built on historical transactions with the ability to self-calibrate the results post-review by a Fraud analyst.
  • Unsupervised Learning provides supplemental security  – with cluster and anomaly detection to uncover and learn new fraudulent techniques in real time, providing the highest levels of payments fraud protection.
  • Reinforced Learning reduces false positives - this stage analyses the behaviour of the operators processing alerts to understand and learn to continuously reduce the false positives.
