BA Continuum is a nonbank subsidiary of Bank of America, part of Global Business Services in the bank.Process Overview: What is Fraud Policy?
Fraud Policy is the mechanism by which the institutions appetite for fraud risk is evaluated and governed, seeking to balance the potential for fraud loss with the need to provide best in class services to our customers.
Why is it important?
Offering cutting edge technology and a low-friction user experience are paramount to Bank of Americas goal of delivering unparalleled products and services to their customers. One of the main challenges facing financial services in the coming years is the increase in identity theft related fraud. It is the endeavor of the Fraud Policy team to ensure that the Bank is able to continually improve our technology, offer new products and adjust current capabilities while still ensuring that fraud risk is effectively mitigated. Adding to this challenge is the dynamic nature of the space, where companies must figure out how to adapt to changes in fraud risk, new digital transaction channels, and shifting customer expectations. The companies that fail to keep up will find themselves struggling to protect themselves and their customers from fraud and will also struggle to deliver on customer experience.
Bank of America is committed to investing in new technology to continue improving user experience and security. As part of this effort, it is imperative that proper safeguards are in place to ensure new products and services align with the Banks risk tolerance. As it relates to fraud risk, the Fraud Policy team is tasked with ensuring that there is a defined, strategic approach to how new products and services are deployed, and that this thoughtful and deliberate mindset persists throughout the product lifecycle.
