Illicit Funds in Terrorism Ebook

Organized crime and terrorism groups both rely on laundered money to fuel their operations. If left unchecked, these organizations can cause massive economic damage and even lead to the loss of life.

Not all high risk customers are created equal

By Chuck Taylor | May 24, 2019
While planning for a panel on Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) for high risk clients, I was provided with pre-conference questions submitted by attendees.  One of them started with “All MSBs are high risk…”, and another with, “Since all non-profits are high risk…”.  My immediate reaction to both was to wince for a number of reasons, including that it is simply not true and can have the dramatic effect of preventing financial access to those entities and cause unnecessary economic harm.

AML Conversations: The importance of training prosecutors with Elliot Casey from the Virginia Commonwealth's Attorneys' Services Council

By AML RightSource | May 23, 2019
Welcome to this episode of our podcast series, AML Conversations. In this edition, we dig deep into how prosecutors in the Commonwealth of Virginia get trained on many areas of law, including financial crime. Vice Chairman John Byrne’s guest, Elliott Casey, a former prosecutor himself, now trains law enforcement officials (prosecutors and investigators alike) on such disparate issues like digital evidence, forfeiture and complex financial crime. Casey also shares his views on the civil safe harbor, an extremely useful protection for financial institutions.

Why I Joined the AML RightSource Team

By Tim White | May 14, 2019
Over the last 35 years, I have primarily been in the business of providing data and technology solutions to a wide range of financial institutions. It has been a rewarding journey to be able to assist countless financial institutions with information and cutting edge technologies to improve operational and AML and Sanctions compliance efficiencies.  However, as with most things in life, it’s always execution that makes the difference.  Technology and information are only as effective as the quality of the human capital putting it to use.

Where do we go from here?*

By John Byrne | May 13, 2019
House moving on AML Reform—Can it both occur, and be valuable this year?! Since the enactment of the Money Laundering Control Act in 1986, the United States has added, without ever eliminating, a myriad of requirements on the private sector (mainly the financial sector) regarding the detection and reporting of financial crime. Our AML community has consistently called for a comprehensive review of this infrastructure to improve efficiency, set realistic regulatory expectations, and actually fulfill the real mission of the Bank Secrecy Act---getting information into the hands of law enforcement.
