Serpil has brought her passion for fraud prevention to a range of companies over her 20-year career in the UK, working in both in-house and in consultancy roles. She is a motivated self-starter with a deep understanding of financial fraud and fraud prevention — which has brought her widespread recognition in what has typically been a male-dominated industry. In addition, Serpil has long aspired to transform her knowledge of scams and fraud into a scalable solution by developing cutting-edge software that automates fraud prevention. As a result, she was delighted to join Celebrus to help establish its recently-released Fraud Data Platform, which uses behavioral biometrics to prevent scams and fraud in real time and to catch the fraudster before the fraud.
