NICE Actimize will provide both research support and technology resources to detect and prevent the most serious of human-targeted financial-based crimes and abuse
December 7th, 2022
Hoboken, N.J., December 7, 2022 – NICE Actimize, a NICE (NASDAQ: NICE) business, today announced its partnership with The Knoble, a global non-profit network of experts working to protect the vulnerable against a range of financial crimes and other fraudulent activity. Through the partnership, NICE Actimize will provide technology expertise, research support and other resources to The Knoble’s Financial Crimes Working Group with the goal of supporting the detection and elimination of scams in activities relating to human trafficking, child exploitation, and elder abuse.
Integral to this partnership, Chad Hetherington, NICE Actimize’s VP, Global Head of Product, has been named to The Knoble’s prestigious Board of Advisors. With more than 25 years of experience in consulting, product management and development, Hetherington currently oversees the execution of NICE Actimize’s product strategy.
NICE Actimize has begun developmental work on several initiatives in association with The Knoble. The first of these efforts addresses the further definition and operationalization of scam typologies. This project builds off The Knoble’s own initiatives, which focus on publishing a common framework for categorizing scams. Additional initiatives will address the detection of human trafficking patterns in anti-money laundering activities. Proven best practices on implementing scams tracking and reporting will be documented and shared across The Knoble Network and beyond.
“The proliferation of scams targeting the most vulnerable has drawn massive attention across the globe and NICE Actimize’s objective is to provide important resources to help financial institutions take preventative measures to identify and stop these crimes,” said Craig Costigan, CEO, NICE Actimize. “We will work with our clients at financial institutions and The Knoble to advance this critical mission.”
“NICE Actimize’s market leadership and experience in anti-money laundering and enterprise fraud will contribute to our group intelligence in fighting a range of crimes such as human trafficking and more,” said Ian Mitchell, Founder and Board Chair of The Knoble. "For financial institutions taking proactive measures to enhance their defenses around these scams, and support consumers, NICE Actimize ‘s leadership will prove invaluable to furthering this cause.”
