What is
Adverse Media?

Adverse media or negative news is defined as any kind of unfavorable information about a specific organisation or individual, that would signal potential negative regulatory, financial, or reputational consequences to companies doing business with them.

This information can be found across a wide variety of media sources – both ‘traditional’ news outlets, niche media organizations, government and regulatory press releases, and reliable blogs.

The volume, velocity, and dynamic nature of Adverse Media makes it impossible for analysts alone to process and structure all risk-relevant data that is generated online each day.

By harnessing state-of-the-art machine learning technology, guided and quality assured by subject matter experts, you are able to reliably identify relevant risks more efficiently and cost-effectively.
