Exploring Automation for Negative News Analysis

Learn details about our Adverse Media Monitoring pre-built solution and the machine learning algorithms that power it.

About this course

Adverse Media Monitoring (aka negative news search) is essential for uncovering any customer’s involvement with money laundering, fraud, organized crime, terrorism, or other malfeasance. Financial institutions conduct such screening to ensure they do not unwittingly become involved in criminal activity.

This process involves searching for negative news reports about a person or entity, and is a crucial part of Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti–Money Laundering (AML) programs for banks and other financial institutions.

Why to learn

Why to learn

Negative news searches today are mostly performed manually. Major banks employ dozens of analysts to scan news feeds and review hundreds of articles and alerts. Analysts spend a great deal of time determining whether flagged articles reveal actual risk, while over 95% may be deemed irrelevant or not a risk.

Benefits of Adverse Media Monitoring automation include:

  • Consistent decision-making
  • Faster responses to customer requests
  • Rapid scale-up of processing
  • Better risk management due to more advanced awareness of negative news.
