Deep Dive: 1F: Connecting the Dots on Your CDD Program | December 8 10:15 - 11:30 a.m, 1:30 - 2:45 p.m.

Speaker: Samatha Welch

This is not your parent's CDD session. Nor is this an update on beneficial ownership which you can find in our Flash Sessions Series later in the program. This session will connect the dots between KYC, Customer Risk Scoring and Documentation. You will hear methods on identifying trendlines, customizing the risk focus and having necessary conversations with the business lines.

Deep Dive: 1H: International AML Hot Topics| December 8 10:15 - 11:30 a.m, 1:30 - 2:45 p.m.

Speaker:Patrick McArdle

This session will provide an overview of current international and geopolitical risks, including the money laundering situation in the Baltics and Scandinavia, as well as the emerging money laundering risks in China. The panelists will also discuss how to incorporate these kinds of developments in your AML risk assessment and country risk ratings.

Concurrent Session 2B: SAR Writing and Filing: Managing Regulatory and Law Enforcement Requirements| December 9, 10:30 - 11:30 a.m, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m.

Speaker: Tim O'Neal Lorah

Every year, as more and more SARs are filed, it is critical that your process be efficient and effective for both BSA compliance and for law enforcement usefulness.  This session is designed to be a “check-up” on your SAR procedures.  We will share regulatory hot buttons and exam trends, law enforcement requirements and how to balance the two. With AML reform working its way through Congress, we may even have news to share!
