Understanding Firco Filter Algorithms

Algorithms lie at the heart of Firco screening solutions. They have been created with and for Fircosoft customers in order to solve broad screening concerns shared by most financial institutions or to cope with specific regional issues. Understanding algorithms is key to understand how Firco Filter is working. This 3-days course will give you an in-depth knowledge on each algorithm within the filter ecosystem. At the end of this course, you will be able to appraise impacts and risks associated to each decision of activation/deactivation.
