    Mr. Shrinath Bolloju

    "Use of technology has become critical for banks, not only to deliver day-to-day functions more efficiently, but also to reduce cost, enhance profitability, ensure safety and high corporate governance standards. One key principle that all banks follow is "Know Your Customer" (KYC). This allows us to understand the customer, anticipate the level of customer account activity and offer improved customer service. This also equips us to detect fraud, suspicious activity, and manage other risks. Our global challenge to CSTS participants revolves around KYC. It will be interesting to see how these participants react and respond to the challenge. I am personally very excited and really looking forward to their thoughts on it.‚ÄĚ
