Additional topics to be covered include:
The money laundering potential of Bitcoin and other digital
currencies has attracted a lot of media attention in recent
months. While the growth of such technology is worthy of examination,
such innovation is by no means the sole, or even the most pressing,
anti-money laundering issue faced by international banks today.
Regulatory enforcement actions that in recent years have cited due
diligence failures at banks engaged in international correspondent
banking activity. Banks must figure out how to strike a proper
balance and get to know their customers, and their customers'
customers, without the wasted expense of unwarranted measures.

more sinister menace that looms over banks and their customers' assets
will be examined, as will the nexus between cyber fraud and anti-money
As banks adapt to a world where combating money laundering is of
growing importance across multiple jurisdictions, banks must
maintain a keen awareness of regulatory requirements in multiple
jurisdictions. Only then can they achieve a truly enterprise-wide
AML program that is both globally coherent and locally compliant.
