FCA/PRA Operational Resilience Audits

Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA)
With DORA impacting EU-based firms in 2025, we are able to plug the vulnerability gap when it comes to financial fraud.
Simplify compliance with SWIFT’s CSP attestations through the provision of a secure, managed connection.
How can AccessPay help?
Detect suspicious transactions
Prevent monetary loss by stopping fraud and error dead in its tracks.
A rules-based engine scans every payment file submitted through AccessPay, which is compatible with all domestic and cross-border payment types.
Potential threats and errors are flagged as soon as a payment file enters AccessPay to enable proactive investigation and suppress problem transactions from payment runs before they are routed.
Sanction screening mitigates the risk of fraud and bolsters internal AML measures by detecting accounts linked to financial crime. We’ve partnered with Comply Advantage to enable the screening of beneficiary details against sanction lists directly within AccessPay.
Confirmation of Payee
AccessPay supports Confirmation of Payee (CoP) checks if your organization is required to perform name checks against beneficiaries to ensure payments are sent to the correct account. Helping you reduce Authorized Push Payment fraud and the risk of payments being sent to the wrong account due to human error.
Preparing for internal and external audits
Organizations using AccessPay are always audit-ready.
We significantly reduce the time it takes to prepare for internal and external audits by providing full audit-logs of every transaction across your banking estate.
From full paper trails of every payment submitted, to a searchable transaction database of every bank account connected to AccessPay – which can easily be exported in preparation for your next audit.
If you are making payments via SWIFT, you’ll be required to attest against several mandatory and advisory controls within the SWIFT Customer Security Program.
Utilizing our SWIFT L2BA connection means we can support you in achieving compliance against most of these attestations.
Adhering to SWIFT’s CSP is also a joint responsibility. As the UK’s first approved SWIFT L2BA provider, we’re regularly audited for all service-related controls – meaning our customers gain peace of mind by utilizing a managed connection and can save significantly on audit costs.Learn more
