Federal Reserve Seeks Fraud Professionals for an Upcoming Working Group

The Federal Reserve is seeking payment and fraud experts from large, medium and small financial institutions, including correspondent banks, to participate in a short-term working group focused on fraud prevention capabilities that are being evaluated as a product offering by the FedNow Service. We are seeking participants with a range of fraud capabilities in their institution, such as in-house fraud detection or outsourced fraud services.

In its pursuit of this objective, the short-term working group is being established to:

  • Understand the industry demand and prioritization for ancillary fraud solutions and features offered by the Federal Reserve at the launch of the FedNow Service and as future enhancements.
  • Identify industry needs for specific service features, such as size and configuration of a negative list.
  • Outline fraud reporting capabilities, including operating rules, obligations, management, and data fields.

Desired Participant Profile:

We are seeking participants who are fraud professionals from operations and/or compliance departments within a financial institution, who have the ability to influence and decide their organization’s strategy for instant payment fraud prevention. Applicants should be familiar with the day to day operations of fraud mitigation and detection.

Time Commitment:

The working group will meet via WebEx meetings two times for approximately two hours on:

  • Tuesday, May 25
  • Tuesday, June 8

Participants may be asked to dedicate an additional hour outside of each meeting event to prepare and review materials complete relevant to the working group discussions.
