Welcome back to the RegTech Supply Chain Series! This series of posts helps make sense of the RegTech ecosystem; the different sectors, what tools are available, and how they help satisfy compliance requirements and challenges. In the first two parts of the series we looked at onboarding and monitoring tools, two areas that Trulioo is very familiar with.
We have tons of regulations and technologies to consider outside of just the onboarding process. We now move on to Part 3 where we explore detection tools. As we introduced in Part 1 of this series, one way to catalogue all of these tools is by business needs, specifically classifying based on timeframes of the use of the RegTech tool.
Let’s review, what are different timeframes across a process lifecycle?
Tools for the first step of signing up a customer. These are often one time or for new cases (ex. ONC, CDD, and KYC)
Tools for analyzing performance on an ongoing basis
Tools for flagging potential events, such as risk or fraud. These are occasional in nature but require the utmost of attention
Tools to warehouse, organize and send data to regulators at scheduled intervals
- Process Tools and Controls
Tools and controls that operate over the entire process lifecycle
After the initial onboarding and monitoring processes, compliance is not complete. There’s a necessity for detection on an ongoing basis. Detection refers to the tools for flagging potential adverse events such as risk or fraud.
There are various activities to keep track of, such as signs of risk signals and fraud flags, and various other market and transaction detection needs.
For financial institutions (FIs), detection of immediate risks is critical long after initial sign up. FIs must use detection tools to ensure fraud is not committed, or that money laundering or terrorist financing funds enter their system that could result in high risks to the financial system.
Trulioo supports the detection process after initial onboarding and monitoring, as we focus on providing the capabilities to quickly detect results for global watch list hits. We check data that a customer provides against our watchlist data sources to see if the information matches and a hit is detected. By performing these checks, FIs are then assured that they are in compliance with their regulatory obligations for this stage on the process.

On the next RegTech Supply Chain post we’ll look at reporting tools; what are they, how they can help your business and a survey of suppliers.
As you can see from the list, there are many options to choose from, and the key to picking the solution that is right for your product or service is to understand your current business needs and anticipate and prepare for the regulatory challenges on the horizon.
Market Fintech conducted a RegTech Performance Report where they ranked top performing RegTech suppliers from around the world.
