[Webinar] Next Generation Screening: Pairing Artificial Intelligence with Risk Intelligence

August 20, 2020
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM +08

This event has now finished but if you are interested in the topic and would like to speak to a member of the team then please contact us.

Sanctions compliance is no longer limited to government list screening. Regulatory expectations and guidance increasingly warn of risks involving the use of front and shell companies, deceptive practices, and evasion on the high seas.

As risk professionals seek access to better content to identify risk, they demand enhanced solutions from legacy systems to better balance the increased scope of reference data with the operational burden of false positives. At the same time, sanctions targeting and related enforcement actions have expanded beyond banks to include insurers, software providers, and other corporates, providing further guidance of which industry must be mindful.

In the session our experts will explore:

  • The role AI can play in the efficiency of risk screening.
  • How intelligence on sanctions networks can boost risk identification.
  • The synergies that exist between sanctions, KYC, and Financial Intelligence Unit capabilities to address these risk challenges.
  • The factors that are driving the uptick in sanctions-related enforcement actions and how industry can best respond.
  • Recent settlement agreements, looking at lessons learned and the associated impact on industry.

Join us to hear Kharon, Accuity, and guest speakers explore these points, examine real life case studies, and discuss best practices for enhancing both effectiveness and efficiency in risk screening.
