How to Reduce Compliance Costs
Regulators expect you to capture, monitor and analyze a greater variety of interaction data while performing ongoing surveillance. Finding the time, staff and budget to stay on top of it all is becoming increasingly difficult.
But there is a better way.
Why is resourcing financial compliance such a challenge?
of risk and compliance professionals cited the escalating cost of compliance as the top compliance challenge faced by their organization.
“I need so many more staff now - to train, monitor and police the capture of the interaction data demanded by the regulations. Surely there’s a better way?”
Increased regulatory demands create a requirement for more compliance and IT resources – to monitor compliance procedures, sample relevant interactions and meet the sophisticated demands of regulators, such as discovering intent or reconstructing events. A growing number of financial firms are beginning to question the sustainability of the resource-intensive approach to managing compliance risks and are looking for new regulatory technology to gain efficiency.
Throwing additional resources at the problem may keep your head above the water, but will you ever be able to make any headway?
“We spend a fortune on manual monitoring and testing. It's preventing our compliance specialists from focusing on more complex, high-value tasks.”
Manual testing is time-consuming and can verify only a small percentage of captured interaction data. It ties up your compliance team with carrying out repetitive tasks, when they could be using their expertise and judgement to investigate and analyze potential violations and other suspicious behaviors.
Siloed recording environments and disconnected data points require a significant amount of administration and maintenance from IT teams – further escalating compliance costs. This effort and expense could be otherwise spent on more value-added activities. It’s hard enough to spend an increasing portion of your annual revenue on compliance-related tasks. In case your systems aren’t integrated or require multiple platforms from different vendors, you’ve got a recipe for extreme complexity in troubleshooting issues—and many potential points of failure.
“Storing all this additional data is only the start. How can I be sure it’s all there? And that we can find and retrieve it if needed?”
Verifying that your recording solutions are performing as expected is vital if the regulator comes knocking. However, monitoring and testing the disparate array of applications supporting your communications and recording infrastructure is often a struggle.
You may have to identify, locate and retrieve a complete transaction history, from data captured across different channels and solutions, in as little as 72 hours! And many regulations also expect you to demonstrate how you ensure and maintain compliance. But carrying out manual checks is resource-intensive and can only touch a small percentage of records. What about the rest?
How We Can Help
Verint can help your business put automation to work and take control. Stop manually testing your infrastructure. Prove that you have effective measures in place to ensure compliance and reduce the cost associated with regulatory adherence.
Manage operational risk and ensure adherence
Automatically check your communication systems and recording infrastructure for issues. Proactively simulate user transactions to validate the operation, configuration, and performance of applications, communication flows and interaction recording. Ensure that you comply with internal policies and external regulations.
Verint can help you reduce compliance costs by providing a deeper understanding of the status of your critical communications environment across multiple vendors and services, including PBX, trader turrets, UC, mobile, and recording solutions. And reduce the overhead and resources needed to do so!
Reduce data storage and retrieval issues and effectively manage data points
Regulations demand that you can reliably locate and retrieve interaction records, even after long periods. But extracting data from multiple recording systems and legacy databases, reconstructing trades and revealing specific interactions can be a challenge. Being unable to do so can trigger dramatic consequences.
Verint can help you extract interactions from a wide variety of platforms and store them in a secure database, from where they can be located and extracted in a readable, compliant format for evidence or investigation.
Use a unified compliance platform to reduce the cost of compliance
Verint can help your business simplify technology operations and cut costs by leveraging robotic process automation (RPA), AI, open architecture, a myriad of integrations and APIs that drive flexibility. Our compliance suite allows you to migrate from multiple legacy point solutions to a unified platform to gain real efficiency. This way your team can leverage a consolidated way to capture data, centrally manage communication records, gain a complete view of the recording infrastructure and easily retrieve data from a variety of sources.
Additionally, the platform smoothly adapts to your future growth due to its enhanced scalability and interoperability with standard IT environments.
