CSI: Improving compliance – from rules-based to risk-based solutions

Compliance is nothing new for CSI, they’ve been in the space for 20 years now. Primarily focused on watchlist screening, “there are about 150 lists that CSI scans,” notes Culbertson. 

“Recently,” he adds, “we've been focused on how we improve fraud and anti-money laundering (ML), and how you move from a rules-based solution to a risk-based solution.

“With a rules-based solution, you catch only what you know to define the rules for. Risk-based solutions are AI-powered, and what that does is look at behaviour. Today, it is only by looking at behaviour that we are going to be able to stop fraud.”

Driving cybersecurity forward

The company is also helping drive innovations in cybersecurity, which for CSI, means a multi-layer approach.

Culbertson adds: “We have real-time ongoing scanning that we do. It's not just a matter of us doing a penetration test once a quarter. Our tests are ongoing all the time. 

“We offer cyber solutions to our customers through our managed services group. But more importantly, I think what we do is create an environment of safety. We run training courses, we educate our own staff, we test our own staff and we also offer that for our customers too.”

A look to the future

“CSI has gone through a pretty substantial change in the last 12 months. We've taken our company private, we've worked with private equity after being public for 57 of those 58 years.

“Now, we’re looking to reposition who we are. We're looking for partnerships and we're looking for acquisitions as we continue to grow.”
