They need to rely on technology to help pull together the disparate sources of data to identify aberrant behaviour,” says Ian Chapman-Banks, CEO of Sqreem. “By partnering with Hatstand and Synechron, we will be able to apply their extensive knowledge and expertise to leverage our software for the financial industry."
