ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Giant Oak, Inc., a leader in the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) for the compliance and financial crimes needs of both the financial industry and the federal sector, announced its selection to the 2020 RegTech 100. The RegTech 100 recognizes the world’s most innovative technology solutions that address the complex challenges of upholding regulatory standards within the financial service industry.
Giant Oak is known for GOST®, a world-class SaaS platform that helps regulatory and compliance professionals screen and vet large volumes of entities. GOST® empowers first and second lines of defense against financial crime and fraud with next-generation speed and unparalleled efficiency and effectiveness.
Current screening and vetting processes do not address the needs of today’s regulatory environment. GOST® solves this problem by facilitating the screening of entities based on patterns of behavior. By adding AI to its behavioral science and machine learning platform, GOST® reduces false alarms while allowing professionals to identify threats significant to their enterprise.
“Financial institutions require safe and reliable technologies to help investigators and analysts perform Customer Due Diligence and combat financial crimes and fraud,” said Gary M. Shiffman, Ph.D., founder and CEO of Giant Oak. “RegTech 100’s recognition validates Giant Oak’s work in redefining how financial institutions, big and small, can apply behavioral science and machine learning to vast amounts of data to make us safer and to secure our financial system.”
