Identify and manage payment risk

The risks of payment systems have dramatically evolved…new laws, new technologies, new threats combined with the chronic problems of error, fraud, and security. Treasury and banking executives and their counsel ignore these risks at their peril. "We didn’t know" is no excuse.

Managing the Risks of Payment Systems is the up-to-date, practical, authoritatively complete guide to managing the risks of payment systems. These risks are identified and described, and "how to manage" these risks is explained. Some examples are: Check fraud problems Wire transfers and liability for fraud and errors Automated clearinghouse payments (ACH) and its rules Who is liable for what? Do’s and don’ts for banking agreements Commerce and payments in cyberspace–security, money laundering, privacy rights Payment systems disruptions, backup, physical security

The coauthors are recognized authorities. This book consolidates their professional and practical experience into a comprehensive and reliable desk reference.

From the Inside Flap

This book is a comprehensive, easily-referenced guide to understanding and managing the risks typically encountered by business organizations in the United States as they make and receive payments. An understanding of these risks has become necessary in today’s environment, as evolving technologies, new laws and procedures, and the problems of check and electronic fraud have become inextricably intertwined.

Managing the Risks of Payment Systems is written for corporate executives, treasurers, funds managers, controllers, auditors, bankers, and their respective legal counsels. This book provides a basic understanding of the risks of the payment systems, how the law allocates those risks among the payor, the payee, and the collecting and paying banks, and how to best manage those risks. As the authors declare in Chapter One: "We didn’t know" is no excuse.

The authors explain how to develop procedures to control the payment system risks and how to maintain and protect the legal rights of the parties to banking agreements.
