With the addition of non-federally regulated banks added to the list of those required to comply, BSA is one of the few regulations where compliance is so critical, it is classified as a “safety and soundness” issue. This One-Day Seminar provides an up-to-date overview covering a wide range of top industry concerns to ensure you have a solid understanding of BSA/AML requirements. In the age of deregulation, BSA/AML is here to stay, with its ever-increasing compliance expectations. Compliance Alliance’s experts incorporate basic regulatory requirements alongside industry hot topics to cover the major cornerstones of BSA, as well as the latest guidance for banking marijuana and hemp businesses, and the ever-growing opportunities and risks of convertible virtual currency.
Why Attend? BSA is one of the few regulations where compliance is so critical it is classified as a "safety and soundness" issue; Regulations require every bank to have an ongoing Bank Secrecy Act training program and examiners routinely ask for evidence — even from experienced BSA personnel; and SAR filing requirements are one of the most difficult compliance responsibilities your institution has.
Who Should Attend? This program is designed for new BSA officers and staff (and anyone who needs a refresher), compliance officers, internal audit staff and any employee who assists with BSA monitoring, auditing or compliance.
