Effective Compliance: Closing the Gaps with Technology

Bad actors are constantly innovating, collaborating and using the latest technologies to exploit every vulnerability in the global compliance network.

As the world changes around us, compliance professionals need to be taking advantage of the tools available to them. Otherwise they’ll find that a failure to modernize is a victory for the criminals.

Join us as we talk to Samantha Sheen, Founder, Ex Ante Advisory and former AML Director, ACAMS Europe to discuss the critical importance of strong adverse media screening and monitoring and why keywords aren’t enough.

This webinar will address:

  • How Adverse Media Screening and Monitoring can help you identify fraud and money laundering faster

  • The size of the gaps having an impact on effective compliance

  • Notable examples of criminals taking advantage of these missteps

  • How technologies such as machine learning and Natural Language Processing might be able to help
