FREE! Tuning & Model Validation Accelerators for Transaction Monitoring & Sanctions Screening

Date: Thursday, April 02, 2020

Time: 11:00 AM – 12:15 PM EST | 04:00 PM – 05:15 PM London
05:00 PM – 06:15 PM Amsterdam

Regulators have made their opinion clear: DFS 504 specifically states that compliance officers must be prepared to certify their AML transaction monitoring (TM) and OFAC filtering systems are performing inline with regulatory expectations. Additionally, failure to demonstrate accurate data could have serious implications for the CCO (as Data Validation is now under the responsibility of the Compliance team) and could result in multi-million-dollar fines.

In this ACSS webinar, Sumit Arora, Director of Financial Crimes Advisory at Matrix IFS will discuss how to use advanced analytics tools to accelerate model validation & tuning processes independently of the TM & OFAC systems.

Topic covered

  • How to authenticate Data Quality in real-time 
  • Data quality and its effects on entity resolution
  • Leveraging network visualization for behavioural analytics
  • Leveraging tuning accelerators to optimize ATL & BTL analysis
  • How to accelerate compliance with DFS 504
  • Panel discussion with Heads of Sanctions (TBA)
