COVID-19: Navigating Uncharted Territory in Financial Crime Compliance

Evaluating measures to prevent financial crime during COVID-19

The COVID-19 impact on financial crime compliance (FCC) has been significant. From fake Novel Coronavirus themed websites and mails, bogus charities, to fraudulent investment opportunities and phishing to social engineering attacks – criminals are leaving no stone unturned to dupe innocent people. Moreover, many of these charities are a front for money-laundering leading to greater risks. Regulatory agencies too have released advisories directing banks to remain vigilant and take steps to avoid financial crime during COVID-19. It has thus become imperative for banks to take appropriate measure aimed at preventing financial crime during the COVID-19 crisis. Such measures could include:

  • Designing new detection models to identify changes in customer behavior during disasters
  • Incorporating new typologies into FCC frameworks to cover different types of frauds and scams
  • Expanding the scope of adverse media screening to cover hoarding and racketeering
  • Adopting innovations such as digital identities and digital onboarding
