Our Methodology means that we only include the most relevant and most useful data to determine compliance risk.
The IntegraWatch® | Compliance Screening risk methodology provides a succinct and comprehensive profile of global risks designed to protect your business operations and reputation.
We utilise a combination of technology and highly qualified researchers to identify, evaluate, classify, and summarise risks from around the world on a daily basis. Our value is in the mix of active analysis and smart technology.
We utilise technology that searches proprietary key words against defined web-based news publications every 24 hours. These key words searches pull out articles from the news sources, published during the preceding 24-hour period. The key words are related to the 23 risk areas we actively monitor. At least one, and generally multiple, news sources are monitored in this manner in every country of the world.
Highly qualified country experts drawn from our Compliance Analysts, evaluate the articles identified by our news monitoring technology for inclusion in the database. Irrelevant news is discarded ensuring only relevant risks are presented.
Each risk identified by our Compliance Analysts is classified according to the risk presented into one of 23 risk areas. This aids the user in efficient remediation of hits and narrowing of search criteria when conducting searches.
Every identified risk is summarised in a short and succinct manner designed to convey the nature of the risk while reducing the amount of time needed by users to understand the issues presented.
