EastNets reveals that 28 institutions are now benefiting from secure real-time watchlist updates over blockchain


Brussels (March 31, 2020) –– EastNets is pleased to announce that 28 financial institutions are now live users of a real-time watchlist feed, delivered securely over blockchain.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Npgmp1TbkKA?feature=oembed

In partnership with Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, EastNets successfully commercialized a feed of sanction alerts over a private blockchain network. EastNets ChainFeed™ is now featured within EastNets’ watchlist screening solution, SafeWatch Filtering. Today, all financial institutions that are actively using EastNets SafeWatch have access to Dow Jones’s high-quality sanction alerts carried over a private blockchain network directly to the screening engine, EastNets SafetWatch Filtering.

Furthermore, the secure nature of the blockchain-enabled EastNets solution restricts the opportunity for malevolent actors to intercept and/or manipulate watchlist data.

Deya Innab, EastNets Chief Strategy and Product Officer, said: “We continuously look to new technology as an opportunity to enhance our customer experience. The question will always be: how and which technology should we use to bring greater value to our customers?

“We understand the challenges and risks associated with manual updates of watchlists. Our customers need a timely, secure courier to carry watchlist feeds from end-to-end. This innovative solution uses blockchain technology to overcome these challenges. Designing and testing a suitable solution was challenging, but we are delighted to lead the industry with a real-time, secure watchlist update solution that is actively used by leading institutions that now meet their compliance obligations every minute of the day.”

In October 2018, in partnership with Dow Jones Risk & Compliance, EastNets showcased the first proof of concept (POC) for a real-time, blockchain-based compliance watchlist.  At this time, EastNets ChainFeed™ Solution provides a continuously updated feed of Dow Jones’s sanction alerts.

Risk & Assurance Group Launches Free Global Blockchain Solution to Dial-Back Wangiri Phone Scams


Telecoms providers and leading suppliers of anti-fraud systems are working together to tackle a fraud that plagues phone users worldwide.

London, UK, 10 March 2020 – the Risk & Assurance Group (RAG), a not-for-profit association of telecoms risk managers, has launched the RAG Wangiri Blockchain, a system where consortium members use blockchain technology to share intelligence about ‘one-ring’ wangiri frauds in real time. Phone companies around the world have already agreed to collaborate, along with leading suppliers of anti-fraud products and services, by pooling their wangiri fraud data using the blockchain. As a consequence, telcos and vendors will be better anticipate attacks by fraudsters, refining algorithms so more wangiri calls are identified before consumers suffer any harm.

In recent years regulatory bodies have warned about a surge in ‘one-ring’ frauds, also known as wangiri, the Japanese for ‘one cut’. Phone users receive calls from mysterious numbers that end as soon as they begin ringing, luring victims into dialling back to an expensive destination. A new US law, the TRACED Act, requires the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to identify ways to tackle wangiri, and other governments have placed increasing emphasis on the need to protect phone users from this fraud.

Major telecoms providers like Vodafone Group have already joined the RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium. Morgan Ramsey, Group Fraud Manager at Vodafone, said:

“Wangiri is a global problem, impacting millions of customers every day. For far too long, telcos have tackled wangiri from a local perspective and in a reactive way. The continued growth of wangiri has clearly shown that this is not effective, and we need to change our approach, both as individual operators and as an industry. Collaboration between telcos, principally in the form of sharing best practice and intelligence, is a ‘no brainer’ in this environment and greatly increases our chances of frustrating the fraudsters and protecting our customers. For Vodafone this of course gives us a better chance of reducing the number of irritating calls received by our customers, but for us it goes beyond that and we want to work with other operators to tackle the problem on behalf of our industry. The RAG Wangiri Blockchain has the potential to play a big role in our continued fight against wangiri.”

35 businesses participated in a pilot of the wangiri blockchain in 2019, successfully sharing data about 21,000 fraud attacks covering 150 countries. The newly released production version of the wangiri blockchain is scaled to work on a global level, and will allow telcos and other relevant businesses to exchange data without needing to install any new hardware or software. Many telcos will have the option to connect seamlessly with the blockchain because their suppliers are integrating existing anti-fraud systems via an API to the blockchain. Any business that uploads their wangiri data to the blockchain will be allowed to access it without charge.

RAG hopes to persuade all phone companies worldwide to join the RAG Wangiri Blockchain Consortium. Goran Marić of HT Eronet, an operator in Bosnia and Herzegovina, explained the appeal of the wangiri blockchain to telcos of all sizes:

“Blockchain technology can become a game-changer for fraud detection and mitigation because it ensures security, transparency, and decentralization. This should be a good trigger for telcos to join, share and use gathered data to tackle fraud in their organizations in a transparent way.”

Eric Priezkalns, Chief Executive of the Risk & Assurance Group, explained the key differences between the RAG Wangiri Blockchain and previous attempts to pool information about telecoms fraud.

“Fraudsters keep changing their methods, so the greatest barriers to exchanging intelligence are cost and speed. If the methods used are too slow, and too expensive, then the costs outweigh the benefits. RAG’s technical partners at Orillion Solutions have developed a blockchain ledger that is faster and more easily accessible than anything telcos have used to share fraud data before. Then we asked leading suppliers of fraud systems to link their products to the blockchain, harnessing data that telcos already collected but could not previously share efficiently. It is thrilling to see how positively telcos and vendors have reacted to this opportunity to collaborate on a problem that blights all phone users everywhere.”

About the Risk & Assurance Group

The Risk & Assurance Group (RAG) is dedicated to improving the practice of risk management, business assurance, fraud management and security within the providers of electronic communications services. RAG is a not-for-profit corporation run by experts in the field of risk and assurance within telcos. We seek to facilitate the education and networking of professionals in order to improve standards of performance, reduce waste, and better serve customers. Practitioners may attend our events and access our online services free of charge; financial support is provided by specialist vendors with an interest in highlighting the importance of the work done in this field, and in expanding its remit.

Something’s Big’s Happening: Typerium’s 100 Day Countdown

London – Something exciting is happening at Typerium, the blockchain company that wants to change the lives of creators. On Tuesday morning (GMT), Typerium’s main website (typerium.io) began redirecting to Typerium.com. At the new location, gone are the ethereal blues and futuristic graphics. In their place is a screen split between black and red, with a mysterious counter, ticking down from 100 days.

There’s a play button you can click on to hear an ominous drone, below it, the words “The #SECONDCOMING” in bold and underlined. The clock trickles down, second by second. Below it, another short blurb “When the clock hits zero, it’s time…” and a field where you can enter your email.

It’s all very eerie, leaving everyone wondering: What’s the countdown for?

At this stage, no one knows.

The Telegram, Instagram and Twitter feeds have also been posting about the cryptic countdown, but keeping quiet on the details. Since Typerium has always been known for its big ideas, we can only assume that it’s something huge.

What more could we expect from a company that’s building a multi-pronged platform that aims to revolutionise the creative world? With its intuitive design app, intellectual property protection, coin, marketplace and social media platform, Typerium has always thought on a grand scale.

As for the countdown? All we can do is speculate about what the company has in store for us.

The only way to find out is by waiting. So enter your email address for the notification, mark it on your calendar and set your alarms, because something exciting is happening.

If we got the maths right, then it’s the 29th of August, Thursday morning GMT, when everything will be revealed. Change is coming, but don’t hold your breath for the whole countdown — great things take time, and three months is a little too long to go without oxygen.

The clock is ticking… for the #SECONDCOMING.
