Further, in light of new and innovative technological developments, payment providers, banks, and networks are eagerly venturing further into new artificial intelligence frontiers. Meanwhile, practitioners are nervously fretting over security concerns and consumer protection.
Nevertheless, regulatory authorities are applying enhanced pressure to the industry to adhere to increasingly outdated payments requirements and compliance mandates.

The chaotic, aggregate effects of an evolving, globalized world on the B2B payments industry illuminate a bright target for opportunistic fraudsters. Although the roles of Directors, Compliance Officers, High-Level Executives, and Managers must necessarily change in this new environment, community banks and credit unions cannot bury their heads in the sand. They must be prepared for fraudulent activity, which is declining in certain areas of banking but increasing in others. Despite the fact that ACH, CHIPS, and Fedwire payments are replacing B2B checks, compliance requirements and fraudulent practices exist in all types of payment systems.

The role of the compliance officer is changing because banks are struggling to serve many masters; some with like goals and others with contradictory ones. Regulators, corporate clients, board of directors, and shareholders are pulling in their own directions. Fraud in some payment types are declining while others are picking up that slack. ACH, CHIPS, and Fedwire payments are taking the place of B2B checks but there exists compliance and fraud issues in all of them. Businesses of all sizes are trying to send payments in the most cost-effective way and not necessarily through the bank- established channels. Corporate financial professionals want a conversion from paper to electronic payments, but only if they can get the payment information with the money transfer.
