PaymentWorks Wants to Keep Every B2B Payment Secure and Trust Between Parties High

Posted by PaymentWorks Staff on Sep 7, 2021 12:53:00 PM

Our CTO Alan Greenblatt was recently interviewed by Threat.Technology.  Except below.

PaymentWorks protects against B2B payments fraud, ensures regulatory compliance, and automates vendor management processes so every company can be 100% certain about every third-party they do business with.

What Problem Are You Trying to Solve?

According to the AFP, 74% of comp

anies reported they were the target of an attempted or successful payments fraud attack in 2020. More than three quarters of the time, these attacks stemmed from business or vendor email compromise as fraudsters pretended to be someone else – often an existing vendor – in the hopes of changing vendor bank account credentials.

Cybersecurity can help, but it cannot remove the risk of falling victim to this type of social engineering scam. 

Professionals in AP, Procurement and

Treasury live with a lot of stress about this. To alleviate the massive burden on these departments, PaymentWorks is offering what no one else in the industry can – a B2B payments security guarantee.   Vendors onboard through our platform, and if we give the thumbs up that a bank account is okay to pay, and we’re wrong, that is a PaymentWorks problem.  

Our customers can go back to sleeping at night.  Plus, they get compliance and added cost avoidance associated with vendor management to boot.

Three Best Practices for Preventing Payments Fraud

3 Best Practices for Preventing Payments Fraud

With its public expenditure disclosures and decentralized procurement, higher education is especially vulnerable
 
While it may be a surprise to the average person that business payments fraud is the largest source of cybercrime in the U.S, it’s at the forefront of every professional working in accounts payable today—those responsible for authenticating and authorizing that critical payments are in fact going to the right vendor, day in and day out.

This is especially true for those working in higher education. With its public expenditure disclosures and decentralized procurement, higher education is especially vulnerable.

Not to mention, most colleges and universities conduct business with thousands of payees—individuals and enterprises, foreign and domestic—making payee identity management enormously challenging.

Sadly, many universities know this threat firsthand. University of San Diego lost $749,000 a year later. They are not alone.

So why isn’t anyone talking about it?
