Reinventing Anti-Money Laundering with complexity

2019-03-05

Beyond Madoff: Anti-Money Laundering with Quantitative Complexity Management. By JB Beckett, Author of 'New Fund Order'.

Introduction: Anomaly-based Anti-Money Laundering Software (A-AMLS) with QCM

In finance, Complexity can become inextricably linked to the rise of fraud. Complexity is the reciprocal of transparency. In a simple transparent system it is difficult to disguise fraudulent anomalies. The system remains resilient. However the number of financial products and product complexity is increasing; some are made deliberately complex, others escape their creator's control by refusing to follow a Gaussian distribution here or a linear correlation there.

The presence of highly complex products increases the complexity of financial markets, offering new opportunities for fraudulent and illicit operations. High complexity is a great way to hide incompetence, inefficiency, fraud and makes it difficult to identify responsibilities. Ponzi schemes (a form of fraud and money laundering) like Bernie Madoff were born out of investor desire to apply Complexity to escape market volatility. Likewise the incompetence of the custodians who accept deposits, monitor assets and pay on maturity must be addressed.

How to tackle today's IT security risks

2019-03-03

Industry experts estimate that annual losses from cybercrime could rise to USD 2 trillion by next year. With countless new targets added every day, especially mobile devices and connected "things", a joined-up approach is essential.

The attraction of cybercrime to criminal hackers is obvious: tangled webs of interactions, relatively low penalties, disjointed approaches on money laundering and potentially massive payouts.

The key is preparation and seeing vulnerabilities, and resilience, in terms of interactions with overall management systems, and that's where Information Security Management Systems (ISMS) standard ISO/IEC 27001 comes in.

Close-up of Facebook notifications on a smartphone.This is the flagship of the ISO/IEC 27000 family of standards, which was first published more than 20 years ago. Developed by ISO/IEC JTC 1, the joint technical committee of ISO and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) created to provide a point of formal standardization in information technology, it has been constantly updated and expanded to include more than 40 International Standards covering everything from the creation of a shared vocabulary (ISO/IEC 27000), risk management (ISO/IEC 27005), cloud security (ISO/IEC 27017 and ISO/IEC 27018) to the forensic techniques used to analyse digital evidence and investigate incidents (ISO/IEC 27042 and ISO/IEC 27043 respectively).

What will we be saying after the next really big one?

2019-02-18

Why are we surprised, caught off guard, when the realities that crisis inevitably brings don't fit our processes or expectations?

In her Pulitzer Prize-winning article "The Really Big One", New Yorker staff writer Kathryn Schulz tells the story of the worst natural disaster in the history of North America. According to scientists, on or about January 26, 1700, a massive earthquake in the Pacific Northwest ripped a gash in the earth's crust along a line from Vancouver Island in Canada south nearly six hundred miles into Northern California, causing massive devastation.

The geological record indicates that these "great earthquakes" (those with a magnitude of eight or higher) occur in this area of the Pacific Northwest about every five hundred years on average.

In "The Really Big One", Schulz describes for us the implications of this revelation. When it comes, the next Really Big One could impact an area of 140,000 square miles and devastate major population centers like Seattle and Tacoma in Washington, and Portland, Eugene, and Salem in Oregon. Seven million people could be cast into this parallel universe, of which nearly 13,000 people could die and another 27,000 could be injured. When it happens, we would need to provide shelter for a million displaced people, and food and water for another two and a half million.
