This session will discuss the latest in fraud trends, along with essential strategies and best practices that organizations can implement to help protect themselves from fraud.

Session 2: “The FedNow Service – Live and in Production”

Announced in 2019, the FedNow service is live and in production effective July. Prior research, repeated requests from comment, and socialization with consumers, businesses and depository institutions indicate demand and the value propositions are strong. Progressive thinking organizations are currently exploring use cases in which irrevocable, credit push-only transactions settling in seconds can add value to their organization. Disbursements such as payroll, supplier payments, and other distributions are initially attractive as consumers and businesses making payments to one another. Join the call, hear from the Federal Reserve directly about FedNow functionality, and ask questions how your organization can evaluate and take the next steps.
