By Naomi Gordon

In the previous article ‘Financial Authorities on the Frontline: Battling the Top 5 Challenges of Our Time’, we delved into the intricate challenges that financial authorities face in this ever-changing industry. We explored multifaceted issues encompassing data management, risk assessments, cybersecurity, and privacy regulations, all emphasizing the pressing need for an effective solution.

In the following article, lets focus on the five ways Big Data systems offer solutions and equip financial authorities with the means to effectively address these challenges, but also serve as a foundation for future development and better management of new emerging challenges.

Big Data solutions offer a wide array of tools and capabilities, tailored not only to support extensive amounts of data but also to integrate seamlessly into existing workflows. These systems incorporate multiple layers and features on top of the system’s infrastructure, maximizing performance across all aspects. Such designs enhance analysis processes, optimize decision making, and greatly increase the extraction of vital insights.

  1. Data Integration and Management – At their core, Big Data systems are purpose-built to handle vast amounts of data, arriving in diverse structures and formats from a multitude of sources. These scalable systems hold the flexibility to accommodate any capacity requirements necessary, ensuring complete support for future expansion and growth. Finally, they enable autonomous internal system development, to further modify the system to fully align with the financial authorities’ methodologies.
  2.  Accurate Risk Assessment – Among the most vital capabilities for financial authorities is the ability to effectively analyze vast data volumes and yield precise insights. Big Data systems offer embedded analysis tools, including the capacity to uncover connections between entities, correlate data to detect suspicious transactions or activities, and conduct complete investigations within the platform. Furthermore, in addition to manual analysis, comprehensive Big Data systems contain embedded automated tools capable of surfacing the most critical insights, assessing urgency levels of various data elements, and evaluating the overall threat risks.
  3. Seamless Information Sharing on National and International Levels – In addition to efficiently receiving and managing substantial volumes of diverse data, received from numerous sources across various functions and sometimes even different countries, Big Data systems are equipped with the capability to seamlessly export any data to external entities. This feature meets the requirements of financial authorities to share their findings, actions, and reports with competent authorities and relevant entities, ensuring smooth and simple transmissions of essential data.
  4. Data Security and Privacy Enforcement – Given the sensitive and personal nature of the information handled by financial authorities, strict security and privacy regulations are imperative. In today’s complex world, where cybercrime is  constantly increasing, providers of Big Data systems must implement cybersecurity measures within the system and its various layers. Securing gateways, active threat monitoring, and user access control management is key. Moreover, the adaptability that Big Data systems offer proves a significant advantage when it comes to swiftly adapting to the ever-evolving privacy regulations, which require rapid implementation.
  5. Efficient Adaptability to the Ever-Changing Financial Domain – In today’s rapidly evolving financial landscape, characterized by emerging new technologies and the increasing digitization of currencies and transactions, financial authorities require tools capable of keeping pace with these rapid changes. The flexibility and scalability inherent in Big Data systems are crucial  in such a dynamic environment. The scalability allows to accommodate any volume and any type of data required while seamlessly growing alongside the organization. Furthermore, their flexibility enables organizations to swiftly adapt and respond to changes, all the while continuously regulating and safeguarding the financial systems.

 

Big Data systems offer an all-encompassing solution to the primary challenges financial authorities face, empowering them to efficiently cope with any data scale and variety, mitigate risks, enhance cooperation, and ensure data security, all while continuously maintaining adaptability and growth in this complex industry.
