Over the past several years, there have been increased scrutiny by examiners on BSA/AML and an increased number of consent orders and scrutiny on the financial institutions policy and risk assessment. Many financial institutions, both big and small, are being hit with enforcement actions and severe penalties based on their weak policies, internal controls and risk assessments. Many financial institutions have found ongoing scrutiny for lack of documented controls, expected controls and changed regulation and laws reflected in both the BSA policy and risk assessment.

What are the best business practices for updating these policies with new regulation, laws, expected documentation and does the risk assessment reflect data analysis or can it simply state the low, moderate or high-risk categories? This webinar will cover all these questions and provide answers to assist financial institutions have a clearer understanding of their responsibilities and expectations to comply.
