NICE Actimize’s “Autonomous Financial Crime Management” User Group to Address Paradigm Shift at Financial Institutions Fueled By Artificial Intelligence

Addressing transformation, the event showcases industry-leading analytics and machine-learning based solutions that work together to more effectively fight financial crime

May 30th, 2018

Hoboken, NJ, May 30, 2017 As global financial services organizations become more automated, adopt artificial intelligence, address increasing risks of financial crime and achieve regulatory compliance, their data scientists and investigators are connecting more closely with one another to address common challenges. Offering an expert forum to facilitate these discussions, NICE Actimize, a NICE (Nasdaq:NICE) business and industry leader in Autonomous Financial Crime Management, will address this paradigm shift fueled by artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies at its 2018 Financial Crime and Compliance Product User Group to be held on June 5-6 in New York. Focusing on the theme, "Autonomous in Action," approximately 300 attendees from about 65 financial institutions are expected to join the two-day event.

Demonstrating the impact of Autonomous Financial Crime Management, an approach that injects intelligent analytics and automation into every step of the financial crime detection and investigations process, the two-day compendium of leadership keynote addresses, workshops and networking opportunities will provide insights and analysis on how global financial services organizations may adopt artificial intelligence and machine-learning based technologies to advance detection of sophisticated financial crimes, address complex regulations, and streamline operations. 

Recently, NICE Actimize has introduced "Autonomous in Action" features and functions into the following financial crime solutions areas:

  • In anti-money laundering, NICE Actimize introduced machine learning and intelligent automation to suspicious activity monitoring. Using "augmented intelligence," NICE Actimize applies a combination of human expert models with machine learning to reduce the noise of false positives optimizing financial crime investigations.
  • In enterprise fraud, NICE Actimize has injected advanced machine learning capabilities into its solutions enabling detection of the once uncatchable attacks. With advanced analytics, NICE Actimize has helped overcome the onslaught of social engineering attacks that have previously cost the market billions of dollars in losses.
  • In trade surveillance, NICE Actimize applies advanced analytics to monitor the entire trade lifecycle with the ability to assess communications and natural language to unearth scams, gain compliance and proactively report problems to regulators.
  • In support of all of these solutions, NICE Actimize's ActOne, the market's first AI-enabled financial crime investigations management platform, introduces intelligent automation to take on the manual tasks of evidence-building, reducing the time and cost of compliance operations.

Leading the industry in financial crime and compliance solutions, NICE Actimize is investing heavily in these categories, integrating such innovations as robotic process automation, machine learning, and other advanced analytics into its financial crime and case management solutions to ensure greater efficiency and cost savings for clients.

"The conversation has changed at our financial institution customers and we are there to support this massive transformation with new solutions and services. Our 'Autonomous in Action' approach, executed across our full line of financial crime solutions, has seen strong momentum within our customer base. This year's User Group probes deeply into what this approach is doing to improve operational efficiency and transform risk and compliance functions. By leveraging robotic process automation, behavioral analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, financial services organizations are both streamlining risk and compliance functions and lowering costs. Our User Group fosters discussion and discovery around these advancements as they apply to fighting the bad guys more effectively than ever," said Joe Friscia, president, NICE Actimize.

An invitation-only gathering of financial crime solutions users from the world's most prominent financial services organizations, the NICE Actimize Financial Crime User Group fosters idea-sharing and exploration around technologies that are improving anti-money laundering, enterprise fraud, trade surveillance, and case management processes.
