Know Your Customer (KYC) compliance is a crucial first step for financial institutions in verifying those that you do business with, and heavy fines are handed out to those that fail to conduct the right checks.
Open source intelligence (OSINT) can help to avoid non-compliance and plays a pivotal role in the correct verification of individuals and businesses.
The Chorus Intelligence Suite (CIS) can meet key financial industry requirements. It is designed for financial analysts and investigators to search and capture open source data securely and covertly. Users can perform federated searches, across external sources and internal databases, and combine with other financial data sets to identify connections and suspicious behaviour.
Search any data, anywhere
Connect to any available intelligence source, such as social media, Companies House and sanctions lists to reveal the identities of customers
Collect data for verification
Capture any web, social media page or video, in a single click
Generate risk reports
Store all captured data relating to individuals in a collaborative workspace and generate evidential reports
OSINT for KYC checks and transactional analysis
Start with a covert search
Use Chorus Search to query a name, address, company name or phone number across any intelligence source, with unrestricted online access.
Search conectors include:
Social media – Look up 100+ social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn
Chorus Search can also be used to connect to internal data and any other intelligence databases via APIs.
Remain anonymous, capture evidence and visualise connections
Chorus Search allows you to remain anonymous using our disguised search function, and maintain a hidden IP footprint. You can always find your way back to the source of intelligence with a URL logger.
Any online content, images and video can be captured in a single click, and the results visualised in multiple ways, to see who is connected to who, what, when and how.
A secure and encrypted hub
All content captured online can be saved as a searchable PDF or video in the Chorus Hub, a fully secure and encrypted central storing workspace.
Create cases and use an audit timeline with date and user ID stamps, to review your evidence. You can also perform an internal search of cases, within your organisation, to reveal cross overs and avoid duplication of work.
Choose what to include in reports and share with colleagues, partners and external agencies. Access controls and security groups can be assigned depending on job role.
The Chorus Hub is cloud-based and can be accessed securely from any browser, anywhere, anytime.
