Supervision & Surveillance Challenges

With rising regulatory fines and increasing personal liability for compliance professionals, the requirement to perform and demonstrate supervision of digital communications is at an all time high. Coupled with the need to protect sensitive customer and private data, the cost of surveillance and data exposure failures is simply too high not to invest in effective and complete solutions to keep your organization safe.

Unfortunately, current solutions and approaches for surveillance and supervision struggle with true effectiveness metrics, a high cost of operation, and slow and low ROI because of their many challenges with quality, complete, and timely data as well as fragmented, fragile, and overly bespoke detection:

Common Challenges:

Poor Quality of Data

Poor quality of data and poor detection results, which is often the case when the data capture isn’t of adequate quality, and then data quality is further impacted before receipt by disconnected surveillance tools.

Lack of Completeness of Data

Missing data records and data spread across voice and eComms silos causes missed context in communications and conversations, that results in missed risks and review inefficiencies.

Delays in Timeliness of Data

Siloed and fragmented capture of communication data in upstream voice and email archives result in gaps and misalignment in delivery times and in unified conversation records that span voice and eComms. The delay combined with the non-unified data and lack of context result in less effective, late, and often missed detection of risk.

Fragmented Analysis and Detection

Implementations that are dependent on data from upstream archives and compliance recording, and that haven’t built a pipeline that can ingest any mode or modality of content from its source typically struggle to have analysis strengths across modalities and the full scope of content. Those range from size limitations in what they can process through analysis to inabilities to span across voice to text to images to drawings to files to video. That fragmented coverage often means more manual effort to look and review content to overcome false positives and false negatives.

Overly Bespoke and Fragile Implementations

Although tempting to approach all detections as unique and purpose built for only your environment, the result is slow implementation and limitations based on the data challenges noted above. The time and effort often results in a low number of non-scaled detections that are constantly being refactored to address limitations. That results in ever increasing manual work for both the implementation team as well as the review team. The cost of vendors and approaches that are largely tool-kits and custom builds is high, the resource drain is high, and the impact on effective supervision is often low relative to the constant “care-and-feeding” required.

The Right Approach to Supervision & Surveillance

A unified compliance approach for Digital Communications Governance overcomes this. By starting with quality and highly performant unified data capture at the communication infrastructure layer, including the ability to support all communication modalities across eComms, aComms / voice, and vComms / visual content of all types and then extends with the unified ability to:

  • Capture all of that communication data together 
  • Reconcile all records for completeness 
  • Apply the right detections to the right modalities and participants 
  • Route it to the right workflow behavior 
  • Ease the reviewer effort
  • Find the right items for review
  • Provide robust reporting with logging,
    and have the ability to do more than alert with true remediation and response mechanisms in the communication tools themselves, is the Theta Lake solution.
