Multi-cloud environment and how to keep business safe

Financial institutions are vulnerable to attacks as they hoard data (and wealth) in a multi-cloud environment and are susceptible to fraud. International Know Your Customer (KYC) protocols are non-standardised across different jurisdictions that need harmonisation to minimise system disruptions and enhance anti-money laundering (AML) compliance.

  • How are technologies such as machine learning and advanced analytics facilitating banks to prevent frauds in real-time
  • Compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS) framework for adaption across different regulatory landscape
