Financial Services Firms Turn to Big Data Intelligence to Fight Fraudulent Activity According to Xerox Study

 As online bank fraud doubles, data security and privacy cited as biggest challenges

 Financial services companies are increasing their use of  Big Data initiatives to combat fraud according to a recent study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Xerox.

 During the next 12 months, nearly half (48%) of IT and business decision-makers surveyed in the financial sector said they will analyse historical customer data to identify and address potential fraudulent behaviour.

 In keeping with this, data security and privacy are cited as the number one challenge for financial services firms (44%) over the next 12-24 months. With the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) set to come into effect by 2017, data privacy concerns likely will become only more stringent for firms going forward.
