Ensure regulatory compliance
Organizations often rely on one list source, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act and US PATRIOT Act. Utilizing the 'minimum requirement' to screen and monitor accounts is a resource-intensive task, yet does little to help identify fraud, money laundering and drug trafficking.
Streamline compliance and reduce financial risk
The financial services industry is facing many challenges—including the need to comply with numerous regulations while attempting to better assess account risk to minimize exposure and losses. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in costly fines.
