FEDNOW, the Federal Reserve’s new real-time payment service set to launch in 2023, promises to revolutionize money transfers in the United States with its speed and efficiency. However, the convenience of instant payments also creates new opportunities for fraud and cybercrime. This is where XTN Cognitive Security Platform® comes in to secure real-time payments and protect businesses and consumers from potential risks.
Risks of FEDNOW: Faster Payments, Higher Risks
FEDNOW operates 24/7, allowing users to make immediate payments at any time of the day or night, which is a significant improvement over traditional payment systems that often take several days to process transactions. However, the speed and ease of use of this kind of instant payments also create new opportunities for fraudsters and cybercriminals to exploit. To mitigate the risks, businesses need to take appropriate precautions and secure real-time payments.
Avoiding Unauthorized Transactions with FEDNOW
One of the key risks associated with FEDNOW is the potential for unauthorized or fraudulent transactions. Cybercriminals can exploit vulnerabilities in the system or use social engineering techniques to trick users into making payments to fake accounts or fraudulent entities.
Securing FEDNOW Transactions: The Importance of Accountability and Traceability
Another risk associated with FEDNOW is the lack of accountability and traceability. Unlike traditional payment systems, FEDNOW does not require users to provide detailed transaction information or evidence of the underlying transactions. This makes it more difficult for banks and law enforcement agencies to investigate fraudulent activities and recover lost funds. To secure FEDNOW transactions, businesses must implement solutions like XTN Cognitive Security Platform® that provide accountability and traceability for real-time payments.
