  • Kim Dodson, CTP, Vice President of Treasury Management,
    Independence Bank
  • Don Youngberg, AAP, Assistant Vice President of Business
    Services, Mountain America Credit Union
  • Deborah Peace, AAP, Chief Executive Officer, ACH Alert

Leading the panel, Deborah Peace has more than 25 years in software
development to help prevent fraud and increase corporate and consumer
confidence in electronic payments. Peace has worked with countless
financial institutions and is well-suited to share her perspective on
how community financial institutions can enhance the capabilities of
their digital banking offerings with actionable fraud prevention tools.

“While online banking systems offer visibility for transactions, they do
not allow account holders to take action and protect themselves against
suspicious activity,” said Peace. “In today’s digital-first world, there
is a critical need for banks and credit unions to empower their
customers and members to respond to potentially fraudulent activity
before it happens. This can be achieved through an actionable online
banking system that enables account holders to take action either
through their online banking platform or phone using voice biometrics.
As a result, financial institutions can have a competitive edge while
minimizing fraud.”
