This BSA/AML webinar will discuss various compliance requirements for AML - KYC, CTRs, SARs, new customer due-diligence process and various strategies which money launderers are using now and how to detect and thwart it.

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.

FinCEN has issued substantial new AML requirements focused on a major expansion of Know Your Customer into what is now Customer Due Diligence, CDD. It goes far beyond knowledge of the Customer Legal Entity to the Beneficial Owner of that entity and its Controlling Persons. It is focused beyond the initial customer acceptance step, requiring updating and ongoing monitoring against baseline “normal” activity for the customer type.
