AK-Invest has engaged the latest risk management procedures in our industry which support the smooth running of our network transactions. Each transaction is monitored by the sender to the recipient to guarantee the integrity of each payment. AK uses innovative "big data" or mass data systems, as well as standard systems such as World-Check to perform screening of sanctions lists, P.E.P. (domestic and foreign), etc. This means that the AK internal security protocols comply with the strict standards you find with the SWIFT system. Detailed profiling and overall control of each partner are combined with real-time activity reporting and monitoring systems to create a safe and comprehensive risk management activity.
Transferring money on behalf of our customers involves trust and reliable technology. This is why the AK has put in place adequate and consistent measures to be able to detect and prevent fraud. Transaction sequences are analyzed in real time and are based on a unique big data approach, where every detail of a transfer, including the sender and final beneficiary, is compared to known fraudulent schemes. Such sequence recognition methods are supported by a robust technological infrastructure, which provides a comprehensive approach to fraud detection and based on compliance principles. All our systems, transfers, transactions and virtual infrastructure are protected by full-stack firewalls, anti-virus software, two-factor authentication and continuous penetration testing. In order to avoid unauthorized access to AK systems we also carry out passive as well as active monitoring of all network traffic, strict policies regarding passwords as well as training of employees in relation to these systems. Security processes are applied in real time, approximately in real time or through analysis which aggregates activities from users and customers. The AK uses central server-based processes to examine the access and behavior sequences of users or other defined entities on an ongoing basis. AK also uses third party methods like WorldCheck.
