Protecting your company from fraudulent activity is a crucial part of managing a business and can often seem like a daunting task. As a business, most companies are not protected from fraud the way that consumers are. In fact, businesses are often held responsible for the fraudulent activity that they suffer, so risk management is extremely important.
Services like Positive Pay, ACH filters and daily account reconciliation are available, however, fraud continually occurs at alarming rates. In 2019, the Association for Financial Professionals conducted a Payments Fraud and Control Survey and determined that 82% of organizations reported incidents of payments fraud the year prior, and among those affected, 70% experienced check fraud and 43% experienced direct financial loss. Since 2019, these statistics have continued to grow.
