I bet that at least 50% of you, reading this article, are doing it from the comfort of your home.
Yes, I know that most of us are sequestered in our humble abodes due to #COVID-19, but long-term, the whole point of the flexibility that “Work From Home” provides is precisely that you can work from anywhere. It may be your home but it may as well be a café, a beach, a friend’s house, a hotel or in short – from anywhere.
Some consider nowadays as the rise of the fifth industrial revolution – the distributed workforce revolution.
A distributed workforce capable of working from anywhere is now a reality of many global organizations today, inevitably changing the term ‘9-5’.
Just last week, Jack Dorsey, the dual CEO of both Twitter and Square informed his employees at both companies that they can continue working from home “forever.”
What that means is that your business can continue onboarding new clients, selling products, and meeting your compliance obligations even if critical team members are suddenly required to work remotely.
While for some industries, like retail or Telco, that might be considered “business as usual”, this is not the case for many financial institutions.
And why is that?
The financial sector is a highly regulated industry, and as such, working remotely, mainly when onboarding new clients or selling regulated products, brings with it a hefty dose of compliance challenges.
How did COVID-19 and the need to work remotely amplified these challenges?
To make matters worse, many financial institutions are fighting just to keep up with the breakneck pace of technological change, with many back-office systems and processes simply not designed for remote access.
As advances in technology give rise to new ways of approaching age-old problems, a new term has begun to surface, one that will no doubt dominate the global dialogue around compliance in a short time: End-to-End Compliance.
Remote END-TO-END Compliance
To ensure end-to-end compliance from anywhere, there are a few mandatory requirements that organizations should consider:
- Covering the entire KYC and AML workflow – with guaranteed scalability, reliability, and security.
- Ensuring Business Continuity through remote access and simple, quick integration with the existing compliance processes.
- Harnessing the power of AI – to better manage risk by predicting and acting on AI-powered insights.
- Working with world-class cloud operations – with at least 99.99% guaranteed availability, certified with the highest levels of security at every layer: PCI, HIPAA, and GDPR.
- Military-grade security -ensuring efficient and reliable connectivity to get up and running in minutes from anywhere.
