Part One in a Three-Part Series on Risk Assessment, Transaction Monitoring and Hybrid Threat Finance. Learn More About Part 2 Here and Part 3 Here.

Full Series Complimentary for Members | Non-members $149 for the Full Series 

The financial crime compliance risk assessment is the first step to building a solid AML program and reducing false positives. According to state and federal regulators, risk assessments are among the top issues banks get cited for in AML enforcement actions and penalties.

In addition, weak or inaccurate risk assessments contribute to the scourge of current false positive rates for detection systems being off the charts. Think the two are not connected? Think again.

Risk assessments are the foundation of a stout AML compliance program that contains effective detection scenarios. Join us for an informational webinar that will analyze these and other issues. We will help you make the connections and show you how risk assessments can assist in reducing false positives in your program, to lay the foundation for infusing hybrid threat finance typologies into the AML program.

Attendee learning goals:

  • Explain the concept of the full 360 view of BSA lifecycle and where gaps exist today.
  • Identify opportunities to improve the risk assessment process.
  • Better sensitize and tune the transaction monitoring system.
  • Highlight automation opportunities for your AML Program.

This session is eligible for 1.5 CFCS credits.
