When you think of a credit union (CU), it’s easy to picture a place that values member relations and face-to-face banking.

While this business model has typically worked to the advantage of CUs, it can also leave some of these institutions ill-prepared for the COVID-fueled shift to digital-first banking — and the risk of online fraud that come with it.

Rippleshot Gives Community Banks and Credit Unions Competitive Edge with AI-Driven Fraud Protection

Posted by Anna Kragie on Nov 5, 2019 8:00:00 AM

Rippleshot is excited to announce Rules Assist™, an AI-driven decision rules analytics solution to empower community banks and credit unions in the fight against emerging fraud trends.

E-commerce fraud now accounts for roughly 75% of all card fraud, causing financial institutions to race to keep up with fraudsters. In response, top Fortune 500 financial institutions have embedded artificial intelligence and machine learning into their core business models. The four biggest banks in the U.S. budgeted a collective $38.4 billion for innovation and technology in 2019 alone.

Faced with more limited resources, community banks and credit unions often lack the technological edge to keep pace with innovations that greatly impact customer experience. Rippleshot Rules Assist was developed to address technology gaps smaller financial institutions face in their back office to efficiently protect their customers. Financial institutions will be able to cost effectively leverage AI and Machine Learning within their existing infrastructure without adding IT resources or staff.

How Credit Unions Can Mitigate Risk With Big Data, Analytics and Machine Learning

Posted by Anna Kragie on Apr 5, 2019 11:47:54 AM

In an era of rising card fraud and data breaches, credit union leaders are constantly analyzing how they are protecting themselves, and their members. One of the biggest problems today? Waiting for network alerts can be costly in terms of fraud loss and customer experience.

That was one perspective Rippleshot’s Customer Success Manager Jesse Sherwood shared in a webinar she recently participated in hosted by CUNA Mutual Group titled “Managing Risk Through Big Data, Analytics & Machine Learning.” Managing that risk, Sherwood said, starts with determining how data can be used to identify and act on fraud sooner.

“When we are thinking about data, we have to start with the problem. What problem are we trying to solve?,” Sherwood said during the webinar. “Data breaches are becoming more and more common and at very large scale. What this means is credit unions and members are being impacted. How do we protect them?”

The answers to those questions start by determining what tools can help credit unions boost fraud prevention performance.

The Equifax breach that continues to make headlines is a game-changer for the financial services space. The biggest fear, of course, remains the unknown cost impact for banks and credit unions.

Inevetiably, in a breach affecting roughly half the U.S. population, the scope of this incident will be long-lasting. The end results won’t be known for some time since the real threat ahead lies in fraudsters’ ability to create false identities (AKA: synthetic fraud). 

To help combat the fallout from this breach, we've gathered four tips that banks and credit unions should keep in mind as they devise their strategies for keeping up with the spread of fraud (and fraudulent accounts).

Machine Learning VS You

Posted by Sid Khaitan on Nov 30, 2016 11:21:29 AM

Have you ever looked at your computer or phone in awe, and considered the possibility that it may be smarter than you? Although the philosophical debate surrounding the nature of intelligence has waged on for decades, the advent of machine learning has caused it to suddenly resurface. After all, when a computer can comb through years of company data and solve a complex problem within seconds, it is hard to not give heed to the argument that technology is smarter. Regardless of whether or not intelligence can be measured, the final answer is that neither is smarter, and both must work effectively together in order to find solutions to tomorrow's problems. Follow the Rippleshot Team as we discuss the origins of machine learning, its implications for the future, and how you can leverage its power to benefit your institution.
