Why should you attend?

Money laundering continues to be a national concern. High levels of drug-related activity and violence have drawn additional attention. Terrorist activities need to be considered as well. Perpetrators have adapted to banks’ efforts so banks cannot combat the money laundering with yesterday’s methods. Software is widely installed to identify specific patterns and “unusual” transactions. But the fraudsters know this and are constantly striving to create new patterns where their transactions are designed not to be flagged. Like in a game of chess, the advantage goes to the side that thinks the most moves ahead.

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all personnel with AML responsibilities in banks or other financial institutions:

  • Compliance with regulatory requirements
  • Designing controls and compliance
  • Detecting money laundering attempts
  • Managing the Investigating of AML alerts
  • Analyzing controls improvement options
  • Understanding money launderers’ strategies and techniques
