Additional fraud risk is embedded within operations for departments such as Mortgage and Consumer Loans and will expand as our business evolves. The Director will work with business partners to educate, maintain industry knowledge and partner with management in these areas to ensure appropriate technology and controls exist to protect the organization from increased risk.

In addition, this individual demonstrates an awareness of what is occurring in the industry through participation in fraud consortiums, counsels, task forces, etc. to provide updates on where new risks are emerging and the direction the organization should consider for investments in future fraud mitigation tools.
