EACT in Action Webinar Replay: Fraud Prevention and the Role of Treasury

On 14 September 2021 the EACT organised the second of its EACT in Action live event series, showcasing important issues that treasurers across the EACT community are tackling.

Corporate treasury teams have been targeted by a rising number of cyber-attacks over the past two years, with fraudsters employing methods such as CEO fraud, lookalike domains, phishing, spoofing, malware and, increasingly, ransomware. What role can treasurers play in the fight against cybercrime and fraud?

Our webinar heard Dr. Gerd Berghold and Werner Strecker of Deutsche Bahn AG share insights as to how the company has structured its technical set-up and how fraud prevention is managed within the treasury function – as well as sharing measures implemented to improve fraud monitoring and screening. The webinar was kindly moderated by Caroline Stockmann, Chief Executive, ACT, and Deputy Chair, EACT.

EACT Survey 2021

This annual survey shows that despite the COVID crisis, top priorities of corporate treasury remain the same. No one will be surprised to see Cash-Flow Forecasting as the number one priority, followed by digitization (and automation) of treasury processes. Today Treasury would like to rely more on technology and innovations proposed to become more resilient and more efficient.
