Why Should You Attend:

Since the criminalization of money laundering and the creation of Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) provisions, along with the more recent USA Patriot Act, banks have been preventing, identifying and developing ways to stop criminal activity from flowing through their doors. Yet, usually, financial criminals are one step ahead in their schemes and processes compared to governments or banks. How do you combat against what you do not know? How can you prevent something if you are not looking in the right direction?

This webinar highlights the complexities of modern day proactive compliance departments. This course will examine the differences between the confusing and often misapplied terms money laundering (ML) and terrorist financing (TF). Although the crimes independent of each other can be used in conjunction, their concepts, efforts and typologies are different. This course will identify those differences, show how to detect similar cases and ultimately how to protect and defend against these different crimes.

Topic Background:

Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing are financial crimes that too often are described and dealt with within a financial institution as the same crime. This unfortunately should not be so. In fact, both crimes have unique typologies and patterns that will invoke different ways of monitoring and proactive measures to combat against. Though many terrorist financing cases may include some form of money laundering, this is not always the case. Equally, money laundering does not have to be the crime of choice for Terrorist Financers. Truthfully, many funds that are routed to Terrorists are in fact, clean, legitimate funds.

Although Terrorist Financing has taken center stage in the United States mainly since 2001, Terrorist Organizations have existed well before. How did they move around money? What were their forms of financial currency transportation? How does that differ from today? Similarly, what are the motives behind the two different crimes and are they similar in any way?

Financial Institutions in nearly every jurisdiction have to deal with issues relating to these crimes, it is their responsibility as one of the first lines of defense against financial crimes to prevent or report such activity. Yet, with increasing regulation, an abundance of financial crimes in the current market, a Financial Institution needs to ensure that it has proper monitoring parameters set for any manual or automatic monitoring systems or procedures. Without such parameters or controls or without properly understanding the concepts in which one is trying to prevent, the institution is as good off as one without any controls at all.
