Course description

Algorithms lie at the heart of Firco Enterprise solutions. They have been created with and for Accuity customers in order to solve broad screening concerns shared by most financial institutions or to cope with specific regional issues. Understanding algorithms is key to understand how Firco Name Matching Filter is working. This course will give you an in-depth knowledge on each algorithm within the filter ecosystem. At the end of this course, you will be able to appraise impacts and risks associated to each decision of activation/deactivation.

Who should attend?

This course is for compliance/business teams in charge of making the decision of algorithms settings.


Experienced users (having at least one year experience working in the software) are most likely to benefit from this training but joiners are also encouraged to take the course.
