Financial institutions and regulated entities must ensure compliance with constantly evolving and complex regulations surrounding Continuous Evaluation (CE) requirements for; Anti-money Laundering (AML), Know Your Customer (KYC) and Combatting the Financing of Terrorism (CFT/CTF).
To meet these requirements, modern enterprise risk management frameworks (RMFs) must be implemented. OSINT can play a pivotal role in strengthening RMFs, both in the CE and onboarding phases. Fivecast automates the data collection and analytics processes, enabling analysts to conduct investigations securely across masses of data that could otherwise overwhelm them:
- Persons of Interest (POI) search performs automated discovery of online account handles from limited information
- Entity-centric data collection with pre-defined detectors targets information of most relevance to an investigation
- Relationships between entities are automatically detected and assessed, including the strength of association
