Prevent Fraudulent Activity for Online Banking on IBM Db2®


A European bank provides online account access to its customers for a banking application that runs on an IBM z/OS mainframe system. Fraud occurs and is difficult to identify and prosecute. Conspiracy is not sufficient grounds for prosecution in this country.

The intent to commit a crime is not sufficient; the crime must actually be attempted for prosecution. Fraudulent financial activity is increasing in the region, particularly in online banking.


  1. This situation was costing the bank a lot of money since it was often unsuccessful in preventing the fraud.
  2. It was difficult to detect the crime and gather the information to assist authorities. The bank needed a straight-forward method to integrate a Linux-based fraud-scoring application without having to rewrite (or modify) its applications.
