Secure Payments Innovation & Research

The payments industry faces dynamic, persistent, and rapidly escalating threats, making it increasingly difficult to combat payments fraud. The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston is leading efforts on behalf of the Federal Reserve System to reduce fraud risk and advance the safety and security of the U.S. payment system.

Through research, outreach, and industry collaboration, the Boston Fed is taking an active role in understanding the payments fraud landscape, then identifying and addressing these challenges to improve payments security.
