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.
July 15ths BSA Deep Dive will include the four updates to the FFIEC BSA Examination Manual, FinCEN’s government-wide priorities for AML/CFT, the Assessment of No-Action Letters, and the 180-Day Update on the AML Act Implementation, along with related guidance from FATF. We will also cover some cryptocurrency information from the Basel Committee. We will discuss things to consider in your BSA program and what action steps if any are needed immediately. We will also cover other recent news items of impact to your BSA program including some Cyber Security Risks as employees return to your institution.
