Business Payment Fraud Largest Source of CyberCrime in US

It is more critical than ever for organizations to be relentless in their efforts to protect against business payment fraud - the largest source of cybercrime in the United States. According to a recent AFP Survey, 81% of businesses reported a business payments fraud attempt in 2019. The risk is real and devastating as fraudsters are savvier than ever before. Yet little progress has been made to help businesses effectively eliminate the growing gap in managing the identity elements in B2B relationships – fueling this increase in threats.  The PaymentWorks Business Identity Platform was designed to disrupt the status quo and eliminate this identity gap. By automating the complex payee management process, PaymentWorks enables payers and payees to exchange verified identity elements in a networked environment. Learn how it works HERE
