Fraud is a issue that will probably never go away. So it will always be on the forefront of financial services' "to do" list. In today's world of online and mobile solutions, it is more important than ever. But credit cards aren't going away anytime soon either, so it's vital to address any percolating fraud issues and rectify them ASAP.
We got to the heart of the matter with TMG's Client Services Director Karen Postma. Karen came on the show and provided a wealth of practical information on what today's fraudsters are doing and steps your credit union can take to mitigate their pestering, yet dangerous, efforts. We also discussed the impact EMV will have on card security once it's finally implemented. You have until October 2015 but recommend you get a plan going yesterday.
Our discussion, which covered many more areas of card fraud, stemmed from TMG's recent webinar "The Fight Against Card Fraud". If you would like more details on TMG's directions to foil the fraudsters, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org and they will send you a recording of the webinar.
Many thanks to Karen for joining us on the program and providing a plethora of practical information on this all-important topic that really affects everybody across many industries. Enjoy the program and let us know what you are doing to fight fraud for your members.

It would be a vast understatement to say the rapid-fire Finovate shows are a smashing success. Since we started interviewing Eric Mattson a few years ago, Finovate's CEO and virtual ringmaster, the shows have grown exponentially not only in attendance but in the number venues. Finovate has expanded to Europe and most recently Asia, adding a true international flavor to the crowd and presenters. It is now a highly anticipated and sought after ticket for just about any human being with a taste for financial technology. Presenters clamor to get a spot on stage for a mere seven minutes, while banks, credit unions, media, VCs, and vendors wait with bated breath to see who will wow the audience with their breakthrough presentation.
To get the inside scoop on this must-see event, Mr. Mattson is back to give the 411 on why this show resonates so well with presenters and attendees alike. He also provides a list of requirements that his Finovate crew looks for in potential presenters. If you're interested, listen up. Always a pleasure having Eric on the show giving us an inside look at the future of finance -- and Spring 2013 in San Francisco shouldn't disappoint.
