The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) requires financial institutions to develop and maintain an anti-money laundering (AML) program that is reasonably designed to prevent the system from being used to launder money or to finance terrorist activity.

This 3-part bank training BSA/AML webinar will cover the gamut of compliance, beginning with the four pillars of an AML Program, to how criminals and terrorists exploit systemic vulnerabilities of financial institutions in order to facilitate their illicit activity. 


AML Program Essentials

The first BSA Webinar will cover the essential components for establishing and maintaining a reasonably designed AML Program. Attendees will also learn the importance of financial intelligence and how financial institutions can use financial information as a disruption mechanism to criminal exploitation.
