Over the past ten years, the level of regulatory scrutiny of financial services firms’ financial-crimes compliance has expanded significantly, with regulators around the globe taking scores of enforcement actions and levying $36 billion in fines.

Many financial institutions have scrambled to implement effective remediation efforts, and as a result, staffing levels in the area of financial crime investigation and analysis have greatly increased. Innovative techniques and processes to combat financial crime have also evolved; in particular, adverse media searches have become an even more critical screening practice. The same goes for non-financial industries where screening people and businesses is crucial to help minimize supply chain risk.

However, the early phase of technology and skilled analysis rollouts has been plagued by a problem of too much information.

In an effort to capture every possible impropriety, banks and other non-financial industries are collecting too much data and now must consider the problem of managing both false positives and false negatives and often need help in focusing on what is most relevant and valuable to their searches.

In this webcast with industry experts from Thomson Reuters and WorkFusion we'll cover: 

  • The growing importance of adverse media searches 
  • How technology can drive greater precision in due diligence 
  • How institutions can improve their search prowess
