NSB teams up with MasterCard

MasterCard and the National Savings Bank (NSB) have teamed up to deploy MasterCard Expert Monitoring Solutions (EMS) with Real-time Fraud Scoring Service.

General Manager and Chief Executive Officer, National Savings Bank, Dammika Perera and Country Manager, Sri Lanka and Maldives, Master Card, R. B. Santosh Kumar exchange copies of the agreement.

The service uses a combination of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Smart-Agents technology to detect and prevent fraudulent payment transactions at the time of authorization allowing the bank to achieve higher detection rates than other conventional solutions.

Its state-of-the-art predictive modelling technology processes all transactions and provides a real-time predictive fraud score that indicates the measure of likelihood that the transaction is fraudulent or high risk. This ensures lower instances of false triggers and related declining of transactions for cardholders.

The flexibility to create decision making rules that are in line with the spending patterns of the Sri Lankan consumer will bring down the number of false triggers," he said.

Country Manager, Sri Lanka and Maldives, MasterCard, R. B. Santosh Kumar said, "As Sri Lanka evolves into a middle income economy, we witness a steady growth in the use of electronic payment solutions for day-to-day transactions bringing with it related security concerns. Taking this into account, we work continuously with our partners in the island to offer greater levels of security."
