The Knowledge Congress Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on Hot Topics in Anti-Money Laundering Compliance


New York, NY, November 21, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast on Hot Topics in Anti-Money Laundering Compliance – A Review of Recent Developments and a Primer for Addressing Today’s Concerns. This two-hour event is scheduled on Thursday, December 10, 2009, at 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM EDT.

Recently, FinCEN issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (Proposed Rule) “Confidentiality of Suspicious Activity Reports”. This proposed rule seeks to broaden the definition of confidentiality as it pertains to SARS by clarifying the statutory prohibition against the disclosure of an individual’s SAR by a financial firm in an attempt to avoid compromising the investigation. This new guidance will affect banks, financial institutions, and broker dealers significantly by clarifying some of these important issues:

- When can the existence of a SAR be shared
- What to do with the supporting documentation of a SAR and can this be revealed
- Disclosure by Federal Authorities
- Safe harbor provisions
- Technical amendments
- Implementation Issues

The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders to help understand the new guidance and its impact on your institution and the broader market. The speakers will present their expert opinions in a two-hour Live webcast. Attending this webcast will give you a sound foundation on the ins and outs of the new guidance. Join this esteemed group of experts and you will be in the know with respect to this important regulatory change.
