Panel 1

United Against Fraud:
Strategies for Enhanced Prevention and Security

This session aims to catalyze effective innovation and collaboration as an ongoing commitment among Canada’s financial leaders. By breaking down silos and leveraging collective knowledge and technology, Canadian banks can protect their customers more efficiently and build a resilient defense against the rising tide of financial scams.


  • Mathieu Auger-Perreault, Partner and National Fraud Risk Consulting Leader, EY
  • Dan Holmes, Fraud Prevention SME, Feedzai


  • Ramzi Bou Hamdan, Partner, FinCrime Risk Consulting Leader, EY Canada

Together, we’ll explore key themes

Advanced Analytical

Delve into the transformative potential of deploying advanced data analytics, like AI and machine learning, data sharing, and inbound payments monitoring. These techniques are increasingly utilized to expand the threat detection network, address advanced payment fraud trends and tackle mule accounts. Enhance the predictive capabilities of fraud detection systems using historical knowledge, transaction analysis, and contextual data.

Unified Framework Against Fraud

Explore the development of a collaborative framework where financial institutions operate not as isolated entities but as a unified front. This includes sharing real-time intelligence on scam trends and ensuring a holistic security posture across all customer touch points and IT infrastructures. What could the role of Canadian consortium scoring and databases have on advanced fraud typologies?

Stopping Scams Before Origination

Discuss strategies to mitigate the origination of scams across non-banking channels, like fake advertisements, emails, calls, social media and telco providers.

Panel 2

Generative AI:
The New Frontier of Fraud Threats 
and Prevention

As an industry, we are constantly innovating, but so are fraudsters. Generative AI (GenAI) is a powerful new tool that fraudsters are starting to exploit. This session dives into the potential threats posed by Generative AI and explores the exciting possibilities it also offers for fraud prevention. Together, we’ll explore Generative AI fraud threats, including synthetic identity theft, deepfakes for account takeover, doctored financial documents, and evolving malware and phishing attacks

Synthetic Data

Create realistic, anonymized training data for AI and machine learning models, improving their ability to detect novel and evolving fraud patterns.


Train AI models to identify subtle inconsistencies in data that might indicate a synthetic identity or a doctored document.


Analyze user behavior patterns (typing speed, mouse movements) and use Generative AI to create anomaly detection models that flag suspicious deviations.

Proactive Threat

Utilize GenAI to simulate future fraud scenarios and proactively develop defenses against emerging threats.
