We would like to share with you some of the trends we are finding while assisting our clients with their requirements to supervise their representatives’ web presence:
The growth of the internet has been exponential over the last decade with no signs of slowing down. Hundreds of thousands of websites have emerged on every subject imaginable, with literally billions of web pages online. As of April 2017, the Indexed Web is estimated to contain at least 4.5 billion pages, according to WorldWideWebSize.com.
It is difficult to fully comprehend exactly how many websites and web pages there are out there in the vast internet universe. As a supervisor for a financial firm, you personally might have a better idea of how big it is when you are trying to supervise your representatives’ web presence.
When performing a basic web search, you get hundreds, if not thousands of irrelevant results. It then becomes your job, as a supervisor to try and sift through all that web clutter to document and report on anything pertinent that you might find. It can end up taking most your day just trying to find results relevant to your intended search.
Your time is valuable. Any search engine can produce an endless amount of meaningless results that need to be reviewed. Our Eagle Eye application is designed with built-in intelligence that sifts through the web’s clutter and brings only the most relevant results to your attention. Our multi-query processes and dynamically designed algorithms provide more accurate results for a quick review process.
In addition to our search results our automated screenshots feature helps you document, report and escalate any issue that is brought to light. One of our clients said
"The Eagle Eye Surveillance system has been a force multiplier in my firm’s supervisory scheme. This simple tool has transformed my internet surveillance sweep process from a time-consuming, multi-day enterprise where I view the same search results over and over to a simple process that can be completed in a couple of hours."
Another one of our clients said:
“As soon as we implemented Eagle Eye, the system found searches that were previously missed with the manual process and as a result, we updated our policy and procedures to minimize compliance risk. Also, one of our previous hurdles was demonstrating to our regulators with documentation that we were conducting the appropriate monitoring but with the audits reports, that are available directly from the system, we are able to document and show individual findings in an organized manner."
Outside OBAs and unauthorized content from your representatives or advisors are a growing concern that will always be present. Minimize your risk by utilizing Eagle Eye. See for yourself how Eagle Eye will meticulously search the web for you and your firm.
