Global financial crime screening experts Accuity will host an SBC Webinar on Thursday 9 July (14.30 BST): ‘Coming out of lockdown: Gambling, compliance, and the new normal’.
Online gambling’s compliance roadmap has been disrupted by the unprecedented events of 2020, as multiple regulators increase oversight on KYC and customer care demands on both a temporary and long-term basis.
A specialist in developing financial crime screening and KYC solutions for mass-market enterprises, Accuity will detail to SBC audiences the core factors and challenges as operators return to business across all verticals.
Joining Accuity are Steven Armstrong, Group Director of AML at William Hill, who will provide insight into how operators are navigating these challenges; and Manfred Galdes, Managing Partner of Arq Group, who will share insights on the regulatory and legal elements operators need to consider.
Leading the webinar, Tom Holmes, Key Account Manager, Accuity, said: “While gaming operators are becoming increasingly sophisticated in their financial crime screening approach, COVID-19 has brought significant challenges to the industry.
“Lockdowns are easing and sports may be resuming, but it will not be a case of just ‘going back to normal’. Reduced staffing will put more pressure on teams, consolidated sporting schedules will mean more transactions to screen, and static budgets see less investment available for screening technology.
“These represent huge challenges, but operators can’t afford to take their eye off compliance and responsible gambling. At Accuity, we’re working with our customers so they can use technology safely, to ease the pressure on their compliance teams and uphold their compliance obligations.”
