Complimentary webinar, presented by AML RightSource
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) has a long history of circumventing sanctions. With the assistance of countries who are willing to support unfavorable regimes, North Korea continues to threaten the global balance of power despite US and other countries and organizations’ efforts.
In this webinar we will discuss the history of the DPRK, the inception of its nuclear program, and subsequent proliferation and sanctions. We will discuss the tactics, techniques, and procedures utilized by North Korea to collaborate with facilitators in other nations to launder money through various shell corporations.
We will then discuss several tools that financial institutions can use to improve their ability to detect this type of suspicious activity at an early stage. Finally we will briefly touch on the political and social impact of effective sanctions.
Key points in the webinar will be:
- The basic background on the threat issue of the DPRK’s proliferation activities.
- The US response in the form of economic sanctions and counter threat finance measures.
- The tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) employed by the DPRK attempting to circumvent the US counter measures.
- The impact on the US financial system and how industry operates as a force multiplier in efforts to counter the DPRK threat.
