Financial crime prevention

Financial crime is a threat to all of society, and it constantly seeks new ways to exploit banks and bank customers. This is why crime prevention is a vital part of our business.

Although there are no perfect systems, we work relentlessly to strengthen our defences and develop our abilities to detect, prevent and report suspected activity. Every year we report thousands of suspicious transactions to authorities and we cooperate closely with authorities, police and other banks.

Cyber security is key

Digitalisation is affecting every aspect of banking. Stability and reliability of the bank’s IT platform is therefore crucial. Interruptions or any kind of breaches into the systems can cause major problems, both for customers, suppliers and employees.

SEB employees fight crime

Awareness among employees is key in our efforts to prevent crime. Our employees are essential to detect irregularities – be it with the help of computer systems or through interaction with people. We add resources in this field continuously, educating our employees and keeping our customers informed, investing in new technology, improving the know-your-customer processes and developing our transaction monitoring.

Measures against money laundering

Money laundering is the illegal process of criminals trying to make funds made from unlawful activity seem to have been generated legitimately. This poses a threat not just to banks, but to the entire financial system, democracy and society as a whole.
