Workflows have been added to Protect to help users manage internal processes and create alignment when a search result on a company returns a hit on sanctions, an enforcement list, PEPs or adverse media.


  1. Upload names to investigate or conduct search manually by entering relevant search criteria (gender, DOB, country).

        2, Results will show type of hit associated with record e.g. sanctions, enforcement, PEP, adverse media (Please note: it is              not yet possible to mark a hit as a ‘true match’ or ‘false postive’).

        3. When a match is found, a new hit is displayed for each category matched.

        4. Associated records can be saved to a new or existing profile. You have the option to add more than one business or                 individual to a profile by searching on a business/individual and adding to an existing profile.


        5. When a record is saved to a profile, you can assign a risk level to the record.


        6. Click ‘Status’ to enter the current status for the record from the dropdown list.
