Telecommunications Watchlist Screening Risk: Challenges and Solutions
In the 21st century, telcos face huge regulatory burdens in different areas and must be adept at managing vast amounts of data in order to implement effective compliance decisions.
One of the most important components of a telco’s regulatory responsibilities is to ensure that they are not doing business with high risk customers, such as those designated on local and global sanctions lists.

This report outlines the wide range of watchlist risks and screening challenges facing telcos, and explores the technology which can be used to carry out continuous monitoring against sanctions and watchlists, across high customer volumes.
