Media Check

An overview of Media Check

  • Strict global anti-money-laundering (AML) regulations, anti-bribery and corruption legislation, as well as mandatory KYC requirements, mean that organizations must keep abreast of financial crime media coverage relating to their clients’ activities.
  • Such reports could be relevant to meeting your customer due diligence and third-party risk compliance responsibilities. The repercussions of compliance failure can be severe and may result in significant fines, severe reputational damage, and even personal liability.
  • Media Check provides a portal into content from over 13,000 print and web sources, which are carefully selected and continuously vetted for relevance. Media Check structures this content using intelligent tagging to improve screening efficiency and relevancy.
