BuckleySandler FinCrimes Webinar: AML Update - Recent Enforcement Activity Impacting Regional and Super-Regional Banks

  • October 22, 2015
  • 12:00 PM EST - 1:00 PM EST

U.S. regional and super-regional banks are under intensified scrutiny for Bank Secrecy Act/anti-money laundering compliance shortcomings from law enforcement agencies as well as federal and state prudential regulators. Recent enforcement orders from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Reserve, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation appear to articulate a road map of the issues of primary concern: issues for which financial institutions and financial crimes compliance professionals should be prepared.

This webinar will focus on these enforcement actions as well as insights gained from best practices. Panelists from BuckleySandler's Financial Crimes practice group and federal enforcement agencies will discuss lessons to be learned as well as clear practical steps necessary to prepare for upcoming examinations.

Who Should Attend: This webinar will be of particular interest to in-house legal, compliance, and risk management personnel at banks and other financial services providers.

When: Thursday, October 22, 2015, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm EST

Complimentary Registration:
Registration required. Please, no outside law firms, government agency personnel, consulting firms, or media. After registering and being approved, you will receive a confirmation email containing instructions for joining the webinar.
