Shufti Pro Launches Risk Assessment Solution to Help Firms Stay Ahead of the Fast-Growing Threat Landscape

The leading provider of AI-powered end-to-end identity verification, eKYC, KYT, KYB and AML solutions, Shufti Pro, has rolled out a risk assessment service to help global industries fight identity theft and financial crimes by evaluating customers’ risk factors through custom questionnaires and fraud prevention data points. 

Money laundering and financing of terrorism have been topics of great concern to the highest authorities across the world, not only as serious and highly sophisticated forms of crime but also as a threat to human rights and democracy. Technological evolution is a critical factor that has contributed to the growth of ML & FT activities, and the deficiency in organisations’ security protocols is an additional factor in debilitating the AML-CFT mechanism. 

As the increase in financial crime occurs at an alarming rate, companies need to anticipate fraudulent activities by implementing robust risk assessment procedures todetect andmitigate fraud. Risk assessment is a key component of a company’s internal protocols, controls, and strategies to manage fraud risk and control failures.

Shufti Pro offers a highly customisable risk-scoring solution best fitted to the interests of various industries whilst addressing every possible risk factor to safeguard businesses from financial crimes, reputational damages, and regulatory sanctions. The company’s solution will help enterprises establish trust by evaluating customer risk factors through custom questionnaires and fraud prevention data points. 

Here’s How Shufti Pro’s Customer Risk Solution Works:

1. Initialise Risk Assessment: The compliance officer sets criteria to calculate customer risk based on industry.

2. Configure Risk Ranges & Scores: Risk ranges (low, medium, high, prohibited) are set based on your custom criteria.

3. Set Fraud Prevention Rules: Fraud prevention rules are created through email, IP, phone number, and velocity.

4. Assign Weightage: Weightage is assigned to each constraint based on your business requirements.

5. Create Questionnaires: MLRO creates custom questionnaires to get detailed information to evaluate risk.

6. Set Risk Scores: Each answer element in the questionnaire is assigned a risk score.

7. Develop a Risk Assessment Journey: Creates a custom risk assessment journey based on selected risk levels.

“As it is said, prevention is better than cure, that is why we are assisting businesses to create their customer risk profiling beforehand and reduce the chances of identity fraud and regulatory fines,” said Victor Fredung, CEO of Shufti Pro. “By running your own risk assessment model, businesses can determine a risk rating and risk range for their clients, judging if they are low, medium or high for money laundering. This risk-based approach will help firms nurture business relationships with legal clients and lower their overall risk of violating AML regulations.”

Last year, Shufti Pro secured $20 Million in Series A funding to accelerate its international expansion, enhance its IDV solutions and expand the company’s compliance suite. Staying true to its word, the company is rolling out new IDV products to fulfil its vision of building a future where fraud prevention is cost-effective and accessible to every size of business whilst ensuring that identity verification can be performed anywhere in the world in a matter of seconds.
