We are in the middle of summer, and many are on vacation and enjoying the warmer weather. However, BSA never slows down as I am sure you well know! 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.
Our monthly Deep Dives take the most important information from the month and delve into some of the key points that are practical for financial institutions. July’s BSA Deep Dive will focus on a variety of topics including:
- The “Organized Theft Groups and Organized Retail Crime” report put out by HSI and ACAMS
- The crypto oversight bill that has bipartisan support in Congress and give an overview of the law and concerns from banking organizations
- FinCEN’s Issuances: ANPRM on No Action, the Elder Financial Exploitation Advisory, Statement on Independent ATM Owners and Operators, the Advisory on Potential Russian & Belarusian Export Control Evasion Attempts
- 2021 Federal Human Trafficking Report
- FDIC Cease & Desist Order for a Utah Bank
- FinCEN’s Joint Statement on the Risk-Based Approach to Assessing Customer Relationships & CDD
