Having become a pro at Zoom meetings during the pandemic, I’m excited to up my game a notch this Wednesday, September 30. I’ll be participating in an excellent panel, “Balancing Fraud Prevention & the Customer Experience,” at the first virtual edition of CBA LIVE, the must-attend annual event for the retail banking industry. What’s great about virtual conferences is that you can register, today, to attend.
Learn from Fraud-Fighting Superstars
This year I’m honored to share the virtual stage with three fraud-fighting superstars to talk about how, with the right platform and security partners, banks can both mitigate fraud and deliver frictionless customer experiences. Our panel will dive into the strategic how-to, discussing how data agnostic decisioning platforms that offer API (application programming interface) integration capabilities with fraud solution providers represent a best-of-breed approach to real-time fraud mitigation while delivering a fantastic customer experience.
If that technology description sounds daunting, don’t be put off. Our panel of experts will break it down for you. You’ll get a real-word perspective from:
Jason Castillo, Executive Vice President, Head of Fraud and Claims, Citizens Financial Group
Jason is responsible for consumer, commercial and small business fraud detection and strategies, fraud prevention, fraud claims investigation, billing disputes and recovery operations. Jason also leads the consumer bank’s Continuous Improvement team, helping other business lines to identify and execute strategic solutions to improve customer experience and internal bank processes.
Jason has been with Citizens for three years, leading the Fraud Detection and Claims Operations teams since 2016. In 2017, he was named the Head of Enterprise Fraud Management, expanding his responsibilities to include consumer lending fraud, fraud strategies and fraud prevention. A more than 20 years veteran of the industry, Jason previously held various leadership roles across consumer operations, finance and compliance at Bank of America and MBNA.
