Regulation and control of the financial industry has become the weapon of choice for governments struggling to control the rise in global crime and terrorism. Tim Parkman and Gill Peelings Countering Terrorist Finance Training Handbook is a practical, specialist guide to training staff in financial institutions in the processes and skills needed to counter terrorist financing activities. The book explains international legal responses and obligations (with particular jurisdictional emphasis on the US, the UK, and Hong Kong); dissects the financing typologies behind terrorist attacks including September 11th, Madrid, Bali and other non al-Qaeda examples; analyzes potential causes for suspicion and offers an overview of the main issues and considerations affecting compliance professionals, in their efforts to protect against terrorist financing.
The accompanying collection of eight training activities, with supporting materials and presentation slides, provide compliance officers with a resource for developing awareness and appropriate behaviour amongst employees tasked with managing terrorist finance risk. Additional training resource materials, including Powerpoint presentations, audio visual slideshows and pdf handouts are available on a CD ROM that accompanies the book.
The background material, practical advice and training resources make this collection an excellent starting point for organizations striving to make a difference in this complex and difficult area.
