AI / Machine Learning – Myth of Magic, a practical guide to its use
Successful Deployments – what they look like and how to get there
The Business Case for Surveillance Technology – how to garner management support
With a more effective surveillance technology in place, more attention needs to be focused on how to manage risk, conduct and control violations. In many cases, a new operating model is worth considering.

HOLISTIC SURVEILLANCE: MULTIPLE ALGORITHMS WORKING TOGETHER
Unsupervised Machine learning is used to significantly reduce false positives by up to 95%. Each day new models are automatically created to track constantly changing false positives.
Understanding where strong active relationships exist, both internally and externally, helps map out how a firm does business. Understanding these natural channels is key to understanding risk.
Learning what are ‘normal’ and ‘anomalous’ behaviors across communities, allows Catelas to uncover key leading indicators of risk at the employee and message level.
Social Network Analysis
Understanding how people connect within groups is important to how Catelas gains a more holistic view of risk and risk modeling. Knowing that apparently disparate conversations are related is key.
Advanced Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms are used to dynamically cluster content, uncovering new topics of conversation which can then be mapped against defined risks.
Combining risk scores such as Conduct Risk, Collusion Risk, Content Risk along with risk signals from across the bank, allows Catelas to build up a more selective understanding of risk.
