Authorised Push Payment Fraud TechSprint

27-29 September 2022

We are hosting a three-day, in-person Authorised Push Payment (APP) Fraud TechSprint.

What it will involve?

This TechSprint will be a chance for the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Payment Systems Regulator (PSR) and industry participants to work collaboratively to better understand the technological solutions that might be available in the market, how useful data could be shared, and possible gaps and barriers.

There will also be keynote speeches from speakers with a technical and policy background, culminating in a final showcase day.

More commonly known as hackathons, TechSprints bring together financial services providers, innovators, academics, regulators, technologists and subject matter experts to collaborate intensively and solve specified problems by building prototype technology solutions.

What use cases will the event focus on?

  • Use Case 1: Real time APP fraud prevention using new and existing technologies: what are the barriers and limitations to current (real-time) APP fraud prevention technologies and processes, and how might we encourage the firms we regulate to improve and adopt them?
  • Use Case 2: Enhanced Data Sharing; how financial services firms and multiple sectors can share data and relevant analytics, securely in real-time, to spot and prevent APP fraud?
  • Use Case 3: Spotting fraud at source; communicating them to those in the chain, including PSPs so that they can take affirmative action and protect consumers

The TechSprint will require participants to play different roles in order to collectively work towards developing solutions.
