Security + Fraud Protection

Square 1 acknowledges the ongoing security and fraud challenges facing the financial services industry. In an effort to help reduce your risk, we are offering considerations to help you take a proactive stance against these challenges.

Fraud is an epidemic that continues to escalate as economies globalize and technology rapidly advances. Individual businesses and the financial system in general are being constantly targeted by fraudsters, whose sole purpose is to obtain funds by illegal means, usually by identifying and exploiting weaknesses that victims often overlook. They are operating both individually and in well organized rings, and are more calculating and sophisticated than ever before.

The possibility of fraud cannot be completely eliminated. However, improving awareness and implementing some or all of these preventative measures can greatly reduce fraud risk levels.
