Rapid innovation has led to commercial transactions becoming both more global and more virtual. At the same time, the threat of financial crimes has increased at exponential rates as innovation in the fraud space outpaces the capabilities of technology to keep pace. One result of this conflict is more than ten straight years of consistent growth in forgery-related fraud. Worldwide financial losses resulting from counterfeit fraud are mounting, threatening not only individual and corporate profits but also jeopardizing international markets and governments.
The threat is particularly acute in the realm of forged monetary instruments and identity documents. The evolution of sophisticated printers, computer software and other technological factors has increased the capacity of non-professional counterfeiters to create realistic fake documents and avoid detection by regulators and law enforcement. This, in turn, has spurred a cottage industry of outlaw organizations of counterfeiters - which in turn has flooded the market with forged documents for the purpose of defrauding the public.
The most appropriate fraud prevention solutions and strategies will vary, depending on the transactional environment of the business.
