Risk Avoidance and the Lessons of History

Remember the Panama Papers? Those were the 11.5 million leaked documents detailing attorney–client information for more than 214,000 offshore companies associated with Mossack Fonseca, a Panamanian law firm that specializes in setting up offshore shell companies. Many of these companies were set up to “hide” money so wealthy individuals could evade taxes. Others seemed part of money laundering schemes.

An entire ecosystem of tools and data processing frameworks have grown up around Hadoopas companies are building out a modern data architecture. Almost as soon as someone identifies a weakness or limitation—and there have been more than a few—someone else creates a fix. That's one of the reasons the Big Data ecosystem is so complex. And why many large companies hung back before jumping in. They wanted to see if any leaders would emerge from the chaos.

Facing the Challenges of Anti-Money Laundering Regulations

To stay in compliance with rapidly expanding international, federal, and local AML regulations and avoid what can be career- and business-ending consequences, companies face the seemingly Herculean task of investigating every suspicious financial transaction, which can number in the tens of thousands every single month.

Some of these challenges will be addressed at the Association for Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS) Conference in Las Vegas later this month.  In his presentation, “Achieving Compliance Efficiencies Amid Heightened Regulatory Scrutiny,” Lee Phillips, Product Manager for Attivio’s Anti-Money Laundering Investigator, will explain how technology can change the investigative process, substantially transforming productivity and ensuring more accurate case resolution.
