“Banking is at a pivotal moment. Technology disruption and consumer shifts are laying the basis for a new S-curve for banking business models, and the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated these trends. Building upon this momentum, the advancement of artificial-intelligence (AI) and High-performance Computing (HPC) technologies within financial services offers banks the potential to increase revenue at lower cost by engaging and serving customers in radically new ways" (McKinsey & Company, 2021).
In the digital age, financial crime against banks and other financial services institutions is accelerating rapidly.
