Now companies have to constantly review any enhanced due diligence techniques to stay abreast of fraudsters and their ability to master new technology. Do you have the time, knowledge and staffing capacity to keep up with the latest computing breakthroughs?

It’s time-consuming but essential if you are involved in large transactions, and meeting major partners remotely, not face-to-face. If they are high risk, such as a politically exposed person (PEP), there is a significant chance of them getting sucked into criminal activity and bringing you down if you don’t keep close tabs on them.

There is thus a strong argument for calling on the services of a corporate intelligence agency such as Blackhawk, with its strong reputation for due diligence overseas.
