Senior Director of Global Risk Sciences, PayPal
The Women in Payments® Award for Innovations honors a woman who has promoted payments innovation through creativity, vision and perseverance in her organization or the payments industry as a whole. The winner of the 2016 Women in Payments Innovation award is Dr. Hui Wang, Senior Director of Global Risk Sciences at PayPal. PayPal is a global giant in the payments technology space with more than 179 million customers in 200 different markets around the world. Managing these multiple marketplaces and consumers requires an extraordinary risk management discipline. Hui and her data analytics team created the decision engine to process millions of daily payment transactions in milliseconds.

As a global power in payments, PayPal is a natural target of fraudsters. To combat this, Dr. Wang with the help of 40 engineers, fraud analysts and scientists developed a proprietary enterprise fraud system that leverages emerging technologies to detect unusual payments activity in real time. This extraordinary project resulted in PayPal becoming a market leader in fraud detection and saving the company millions of dollars. For her extraordinary work in analytics and her ongoing mentorship of young women entering the data analytics field, Dr. Wang was the natural choice of awards committee for Women in Payments® USA 2016 Award for Innovation.
