Feedzai, a key player focused on fighting financial crime with AI, has joined the Global Anti Scam Alliance (GASA) – a not-for-profit organisation whose goal is “to protect consumers across the world from scams – as a corporate member.”
GASA brings together governments, law enforcement, consumer protection organizations, financial authorities and commercial organizations “to share insights on scams and define concrete solutions to turn the tide on scams.”
More than $55 billion was “lost by consumers last year in cybercrime, while the number of scams reported to law enforcement grew to nearly 300 million.”
However, due to “the fact that scammers work globally, and law enforcement operate locally and regionally, less than 1% of all cybercriminals are prosecuted.”
GASA’s mission is “the change that by bringing key stakeholders together and facilitating the sharing of key data, knowledge, lessons learned, intelligence and evidence-based research” so they can:
- Educate the public about the different types of scams, how to recognise them, and how to protect themselves from falling victim.
- Understand the nature and scope of scams, and to develop effective solutions to combat them.
- Discuss the results of existing policies and the development of new legislation to protect citizens against scams.
