Welcome to This Week in AML - the weekly podcast series hosted by AML RightSource staff for financial crimes professionals. Each week we will discuss one specific topic relevant in the Financial Crimes compliance space.

This week, Vice Chairman John Byrne, and Creative Director Elliot Berman of the AML RightSource staff discuss a recent letter from the Acting Comptroller of the Currency to the president and the executive director of the National Conference of Mayors, about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on National Banks. The letter seeks to make the mayors “aware of a certain set of risks to the nation’s banking system created by continued state and local lockdown orders".
