FEATURE the average attack has occurred on Windows 7, 8 and 10. This means that analysing device intelligence can help detect fraudulent sub-populations. Rules and policies are also vital. Security leaders need to ensure that all local laws and regulations are accounted for when creating automated processes with their security tools – but it shouldn’t end there. Because there is no one- size-fits-all approach when it comes to running a secure business, it’s essential that these policies are tailored to meet the organisation’s specific needs. u Yooz leverages Artificial Intelligence to help UK businesses tackle invoice fraud ooz, an international provider of intelligent P2P software in the cloud, has announced the launch of YoozProtect, a new functionality to assist in the automatic detection of fraudulent and forged documents and enhance regulation compliance for UK businesses. Y Several large-scale cases have highlighted the fraud issue, costing businesses millions of pounds in fake invoices. But invoice fraud doesn’t just affect big players.

The digital era has offered new ways for culprits to prepare and conduct fraudulent operations, meaning finance departments of companies need to be much more vigilant. That is why Yooz has launched a new functionality to its solution based on Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence that can prevent fraud easily and more efficiently than human-based processes. Fraud fight and data protection: A major challenge for CFOs in the digital context With Digital Transformation, CFOs have become not only financial gatekeepers 50 but also data protectors. CFOs are at the front line of fighting fraud risks which can arise in many different ways and situations. In this context, meeting their companies’ regulatory and safety challenges is becoming one of their highest priorities. For most CFOs, preventing fraud involves implementing mainly behavioural and procedural solutions, such as increasing employee awareness, reinforcing controls or audits. Although necessary, these approaches have their limitations, as fraudsters often come from inside the company or among its close associates and therefore know perfectly how to manipulate victims and thwart human vigilance. Furthermore, the weight of controls may become counterproductive and reduce agility. This is where Artificial Intelligence with Yooz can significantly improve protection and compliance without the need and the risks of manual processes.
