Special Topic: FinCEN’s National Priorities
One special topic that will be presented at the conference is FinCEN’s National Priorities. As of most recent news, FinCEN (Financial Crimes Enforcement Network), which operates under the Treasury, has proactively rolled out directives and set specific targets for businesses, so they have a direction in which to steer their AML controls toward combatting. In January, they released eight priority threats which require imminent action in combatting such as human trafficking, drug trafficking, proliferation financing, corruption, and both international and domestic terrorism.
At the conference, the expert speakers will expand on new and surfacing money laundering methods that anti-fraud professionals should become aware of along with developing insights in relation to FinCEN’s regulatory expectations for managing fraud-related risks, including intellectual property theft by foreign intelligence organizations.
