We recently returned from the K(NO)W Identity Conference hosted by One World Identity, the first major conference focused on digital identities. For years identities have been taken for granted, while most business leaders didn’t realize that they sit at the center of every business transaction in the digital era. Our friends from One World Identity not only recognize this, they also understand that education and collaboration are necessary to unlock the value of digital identities for businesses, regardless of the industry.
Summary: Days 2 and 3 discussed how ISIS is losing, cyber, the risks associated with banking marketplace lending, what a culture of compliance means, how to handle cyber based extortion, fraud & ransomware attacks, and how AML personnel are dinosaurs.
ACAMS Florida just had three days of Anti-Money Laundering discussion for small and large institutions, law enforcement, and regulators. Listed below are the highlights of Day One, including what regulatory agencies are looking for, why de-risking isn't going away, how algorithms can make your life better, and how Law Enforcement, NGO’s and Financial Institutions (FI’s) can work together to better prevent money laundering.
U.S. anti-money laundering regulations are extensive, filled with explicit and implicit requests, and require studying. However, the benefit of knowing them is fundamental: It will save you time, money, and maybe your business.
The trends for Anti-Money Laundering seem particularly clear this year: 1) More Enforcement; 2) Efficiencies in Compliance, and 3) Challenges with the explosion of FinTech. We can see the reflection of these subjects in ACAMS agenda for their fall conference in Las Vegas.
These are key sessions at the ACAMS conference that we are looking forward to attend. We have divided them into two categories:
Everything from innovation to transaction volume is rapidly increasing in the digital world. And as transaction volume goes so does fraud, money laundering and the cost of regulatory compliance.
We have a reasonably large set of FinTech clients operating in emerging markets, ranging from Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East. They include Virtual Currency Exchanges, Remittance providers, B2B Cross Border Payment facilitators, and Alternative Lending.
We recently organized a webinar with a panel of industry experts regarding Know Your Customer techniques. You can access the recording of the webinar here. Our panel covered KYC best practices, strategies, and procedures. The panelists shared their experiences dealing with KYC, and answered a variety of questions from the audience.
In case you missed it, we've compiled 22 of the most important takeaways gathered during the webinar, and developed the “KYC Compliance Fundamentals Guide” that you can use to verify the quality and strength of your KYC processes and procedures.
