  • ID: 4899984
  • Webinar
  • January 2018
  • Region: Global
  • 60 Minutes

Why Should You Attend:

In recent years, FinCEN has increased its BSA enforcement against non-bank financial institutions (NBFIs) and expanded its use of other enforcement authorities. By explaining how NBFIs, primarily, MSBs, violated the BSA, this presentation will help personnel, especially those who implement BSA/AML programs at MSBs, to better understand how to comply with the BSA and avoid being sanctioned by FinCEN.

FinCEN has also used GTOs to target specific industries and geographic areas for additional reporting. Attendees will learn more about the significance of these orders and how they benefit law enforcement. This webinar will also be useful to all those responsible for BSA programs at financial institutions to learn about trends in FinCEN enforcement.

money transmitters
check cashers
virtual currency exchanges
FinCEN’s use of GTOs targeting cash couriers
