How Fraud Prevention Tech can Save Banks €10M a Year

September 6, 2019 Published in: News Author: Vedran Bozicevic

A typical European bank, serving 10 million customers, could save up to €10 million annually and avoid growing fines by the regulator by implementing technology to improve the ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) processes, according to new research from Mitek and Consult Hyperion.

The report, The Cost of Compliance and How to Reduce It, found that following new EU Anti-Money Laundering (AML4/5) and Counter-Terrorist Financing (CTF) rules extending the scope of KYC requirements, the annual cost of punitive non-compliance fines has risen to €3.5 million.

When things go wrong – which they do, as card ID theft in the UK rose by 59% to £47.3 million last year – these fines could soar into the tens or even hundreds of millions. But it’s not all about the financial and business costs.

The risk of reputational loss, losing license to operate, and even personal liability of senior management are also increasingly significant for banks who get KYC wrong.
