Complimentary Webinar, Presented by AML RightSource

US financial institutions continuously face pressures to have effective controls in place to monitor, investigate, and report suspicious activities to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN). The mounting pressures of meeting regulatory obligations through lean, business-efficient processes is at the forefront of Board of Director meetings and mandates. 

Doing more with less and producing favorable results is the new norm and expectation in the financial crimes risk and compliance space. An effective financial intelligence unit plays a critical role in meeting that expectation.

In this webinar, expert speakers will provide practical insights into what goes into designing, implementing, and sustaining a high performing financial intelligence unit. Attendees will learn:

  • The core components of an FIU’s operational mission.
  • The strategic operating model that yields mission success.
  • The key measurements of operational performance.
  • How to make seamless operational shifts.
