Much is happening in the realm of BSA these days. The FFIEC is issuing updated guidance with a ML/TF risk focus and FinCEN is focusing on the implementation of the 2020 AMLA (Corporate Transparency Act). Every month we do a session on the latest news in the industry on Payments, Fraud, Cyber, OFAC, Regulator issuances, cannabis, human trafficking, crypto, and a host of other topics. That session is a quick overview of all the news for the month.
This BSA Deep Dive will take some of those key news items from each month and delve into them in depth to further enable BSA and risk personnel with practical help in applying that information within their own institution. It will also cover any new information tied to the AMLA Act of 2020 as released. The more detailed topics of each session will be announced within the preceding weeks.
