White Paper, Expert Available: Software the Answer for OFAC, BIS Compliance, But Should You Build or Buy?
--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ATTUS Technologies, Inc.:
Failure to screen against OFAC and BIS list updates can result in crippling penalties, which can easily destroy a financial institution or business. However, ensuring that an institution is in sync with every federal regulatory compliance law is a costly and daunting task.
The question companies face is whether to build an internal compliance software solution or seek out a third-party provider. Making the wrong choice could have substantial monetary and reputational implications for companies in the event that the implemented solution should fail. In order to help financial institutions and businesses make the right decision for their situation, ATTUS Technologies, Inc., a division of Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI), has published a white paper outlining the various factors one should consider in the build vs. buy analysis.
Bradley Allen, vice president of ATTUS, is available to provide his expert commentary on OFAC and BIS compliance challenges as well as the due diligence questions to ask when choosing to build or buy a screening solution, which include:
-- What resources does the company have at its disposal and how soon is functionality required;
-- Is outside subject-matter expertise necessary;
-- Is company-specific functionality a requirement;
-- Which is more cost effective - building or buying; and
-- Are there any unique characteristics of the business to consider?
