Infographic - External data: The periscope for your compliance function

Reading Time 5 minutes | Written by Michiel Scheepens | June 1, 2019

How well your organization can deal with threats from the outside world depends on the data you have on customers, suppliers, prospects and third parties, supplemented with information on the latest legislation. Structured external data on your business relationships from data providers such as Altares - Dun & Bradstreet is a true compliance treasure chest.

The Data Cloud van Dun & Bradstreet, for which Altares serves as a partner in the Benelux, is the world's largest commercial database. Among other things, it contains up-to-date and verified data on more than 300 million companies worldwide, 100 million beneficial owners, 1.5 million PEPs, 700 blacklists as well as countless global and regional sanctions lists, watchlists and investigation lists.

This kind of real-time data enables you to make decisions based on daily reality. In addition to contextual information, you also gain valuable signals for processes such as know your customer (KYC), anti-money laundering (AML) and anti-bribery and corruption (ABAC).
