Using our innovative products, Mizen provides a range of services to help you manage and enhance your compliance program:
Compliance Program Assessments
Evaluate your program to identify any gaps or areas for improvement. The assessment can be tailored to specific needs or specific regulatory requirements of the institution, e.g., NY DFS 504, NY DFS 500, FINRA 3310.
Compliance Program Design
Assist in designing new compliance programs, redesigning an existing one or tailoring for a specific regulatory requirement such as DFS NY 504. Support institutions that are overwhelmed with the magnitude of obligations related to developing a program or overhauling an existing one.
To manage and influence culture, identify current attributes in order to measure it and define possible outcomes. We have combined industry experience with behavioral science best practices to assess an institution’s culture as it relates to specific regulatory considerations concerning conduct, compliance, and risk.
Support AML and sanctions risk management by using sophisticated data analytics and trend analyses on transactions and account activities to gain additional insights concerning customers and account activities.
