The world is changing rapidly and sustaining effective financial crime risk management is becoming extremely challenging and complex. The breadth and capabilities of anti-money laundering (AML) technology solutions must now go beyond traditional offerings to address new market forces, combat financial crime and achieve regulatory compliance while also elevating the customer experience and improving operational efficiency.
The LexisNexis® Financial Crime Digital Intelligence solution was awarded an Aite-Novarica Group’s 2022 Impact Award in Fraud & AML in the Best Sanction/Watchlist Screening Innovation category.
The solution was selected because it helps organizations meet expanded regulatory requirements related to the use of IP address and geolocation as a control for digital sanctions evasion. Financial Crime Digital Intelligence also helps organizations better detect location-based sanctions risk, particularly when evaders are attempting to obscure their true location with technologies such as proxy or VPN.
Financial Crime Digital Intelligence is underpinned by the LexisNexis® Digital Identity Network® that provides a rich source of shared global digital identity and location intelligence collected from a broad range of industries. On every transaction across the Digital Identity Network®, up to 10 different location signals are gathered. Using this rich data combined with triangulation and proxy-piercing capabilities makes it possible for Financial Crime Digital Intelligence to unmask the likely true location of an entity, even when it is obscured.
Digital channels have become the new darling of criminals seeking to launder money or evade international sanctions. Organized crime networks capitalize on the anonymity in digital channels, easily eluding current controls by presenting themselves as an entity other than their own or spoofing location with proxy, VPN or TOR browsers. Since Russian sanctions were initiated in February 2022, demand for VPNs in Russia has increased. The LexisNexis® Digital Identity Network® recorded a 250% increase in payments made on devices using a TOR browser or VPN as well as a substantial surge in high-velocity and geo-spoofing transactions. Regulatory focus on digital threat vectors is also intensifying, reinforcing the imperative for heightened vigilance on detecting and preventing location-based sanctions evasion. LexisNexis® Financial Crime Digital Intelligence provides the innovative capabilities required to help manage emerging regulatory requirements and elevated digital sanctions evasion risk.
