Feedzai, the market leader in 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 organisations, financial authorities and commercial organisations to share insights on scams and define concrete solutions to turn the tide on scams.
By joining the alliance, Feedzai will bring its expertise and knowledge in fighting financial crime with AI, providing invaluable insight to strengthen GASA’s networks and working groups.
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.
