Event Synopsis:
As manifested by agency rulemakings, enforcement actions, and guidance, the commitment of financial regulatory agencies to enforce the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and to hold compliance professionals liable remains steadfast. Financial institutions should expect heightened anti-money laundering (AML) supervision and enforcement actions in the coming years as the government continue to focus on fighting terrorism and strengthening national security.

Indeed, BSA/AML and economic sanctions compliance is still one of the top risks faced by financial institutions. Compliance challenges are consistent across industries.

In this live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the recent enforcement trends and developments regarding BSA/AML Compliance and will help the audience understand all the important aspects of this significant topic. Speakers will offer best BSA/AML Compliance practices and will also underscore strategies in overcoming heightened BSA/AML compliance challenges in 2017 and beyond.

Key topics include:
- BSA/AML Outlook
- State-Level Regulations
- Compliance Challenges
- Best Compliance Practices
- Recent BSA/AML Enforcement Trends and Developments
