How the payments industry is coming together to quash financial crime

January 1, 2021 | By Hayden Harrison

The world over has seen a marked increase in fraud and money laundering during the Covid-19 pandemic. But our industry is fighting back, helping to keep people and organisations safe when transacting in the digital economy.

Mastercard convened an expert roundtable chaired by Joy MacKnight, managing editor at The Banker, and featuring representatives from our organisation, Cifas and TSB bank, to discuss how partners are collaborating to innovate and deploy intelligent network-level solutions to trace and prevent financial crime.

"This is about more than the dollar or the pound — this is about people’s wellbeing."
