Overview

Financial institutions are powered by high-volume transactions, demand varying data formats and are regulated by strict regulations such as The Proceeds of Crime Act (POCA), The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), Basel II, Sarbanes Oxley (SOX) and the USA Patriot Act. In order to meet compliance requirements and prevent fraud in a sustainable manner, there must be technologies in place that can import and analyze 100% of an organization’s data, regardless of type, volume or veracity.

Internal Audit, Risk & Compliance and Business operations now require data analytics that can monitor their data sources in a holistic fashion, in a way that is collaborative, automated and repeatable. CaseWare Analytics allows financial managers, auditors and compliance personnel to detect potential money-laundering schemes, monitor loan portfolio risks and analyse potential risks within the business, such as access controls, disbursements and regulatory compliance.
