BuckleySandler FinCrimes Webinar: Conducting a Financial Crimes Risk Assessment

  • February 18, 2016
  • 12:00 PM EST - 1:00 PM EST

A comprehensive, enterprise risk assessment not only is a regulatory expectation but is the foundation upon which the BSA/AML program is built. As set out in Appendix I of the FFIEC Manual, the risk assessment allows for the development of appropriate internal controls which, in turn, provides the basis for a risk-based BSA compliance program.

This webinar builds upon the October 2015 and January 2016 webinars in which counsel from BuckleySandler’s FinCrimes practice as well as federal bank regulators discussed the lessons that should be learned from 2015’s enforcement actions as key regulator speeches and presentations

Please join us for a discussion of the following topics:

  • A best practice  overview of the financial crimes risk assessment process focused on:
    • Approach
    • Methodology (quantitative and qualitative issues)
