One of the work streams the Secure Payments Task Force focused on was working to improve the awareness and implementation of cybersecurity and fraud information sharing among U.S. payment industry participants. The task force compiled the following list of data sources that highlights broad-reaching intelligence reports, payments fraud trends, best practices and benchmarks, and additional resources that can help your organization address payments fraud risk.  For example, financial institutions can leverage timely and actionable reports highlighting payments fraud incidents and cybersecurity threats occurring across the payments industry. Merchants and other business end-users can leverage best practices and benchmarks to help protect them from data breaches and fraud attacks.

The list will be periodically updated based on the availability of new data sources and the payments security threat landscape. Please note that this list is for informational purposes and was not intended as an endorsement by the Secure Payments Task Force or any member thereof.

How can my organization get added to the list?

Organizations with relevant services may submit a request to be added to the list using the Provide Feedback form.  Examples of relevant services include: cybersecurity and fraud prevention services that highlight intelligence reports, payments fraud trends, and best practices and/or benchmarks. Upon submitting the request you will receive a confirmation email requesting additional information.

Use the filters below to find data sources that could benefit your organization; more information about the filters can be found here (PDF). A full, printable version of the data sources is also available for download (PDF).

You are not required to enter a value in all filter options. Selecting a filter will narrow the returned results. (Ex. “All” filters will return results that generally apply across all payment types and/or participants)

Note: Results returned for a particular payment type(s) also include those data sources applicable to all payment types (these sources contain information pertinent to the selected payment type(s)).

As part of fulfilling its mission to safeguard the financial system and promote national security, the United States Department of the Treasury – Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), through its Financial Institution Advisory Program, issues public and non-public advisories to financial institutions concerning money laundering or terrorist financing threats and vulnerabilities for the purpose of enabling financial institutions to guard against such threats. Advisories often contain illicit activity typologies, red flags that facilitate monitoring, and guidance on complying with FinCEN regulations to address those threats and vulnerabilities. Financial institutions may use this information to enhance their anti-money laundering (AML) monitoring systems for more valuable suspicious activity reporting.
