The benefits of digitalisation and innovation in the legal sector

Digitalisation vs innovation

While the two terms tend to come hand in hand, and many assume they mean the same thing, they don’t, although they are intrinsically linked.

Digitalisation is the adoption of new digital technology, while innovation is about developing a new product or service, or a new way of doing things.

Innovation does not have to be digital and will generally have little or no impact on the structure of the business and its workflows, while digitalisation is exclusively about the adoption of digital products and services and will usually affect the entire organisation and the way in which it functions. And it is digitalisation that we are going to focus on in this whitepaper.

Perpetual Know Your Customer (pKYC) - Why should you move to a dynamic AML program?

Perpetual Know Your Customer (pKYC) - also known as continual KYC - is the ongoing process by which businesses continuously update customer information as a part of their risk management strategy and is a step on from a standard Know Your Customer (KYC) process. The latest concept within customer due diligence, pKYC is gaining traction because, not only does it offer a much more dynamic and secure risk management solution now but will automatically evolve as clients’ circumstances change thereby reducing risk and the level of period work required by regulated firms, which is why it is fast establishing itself as the future of KYC.
