“I’m really proud to play a role in reducing the harm caused to society by financial crime. By better using data and new technologies, we can more accurately detect and prevent criminals from exploiting the financial system. There’s nothing more satisfying to our teams than helping a client use technology to successfully prevent a crime taking place, or to disrupt the activity of criminal groups.
“The banking sector is going through massive transformation as a result of new technologies and innovation in digital customer experiences. This comes with its own challenges, but the financial institutions leading the pack will be those who keep pace with this transformation, improving customer experiences and reducing operating costs, while actually improving their protection against financial crime and cyber crime.”
