Course Description:

So your reporting entity implemented an AML/CTF program and everyone in the business committed to do what was needed. How much has changed in the intervening years since implementation and, more importantly, how do you monitor compliance with the program? Are you struggling with the roles set out in the three lines of defence? Whilst you may sit in line 2 are you dealing with the business and making decisions they should be making? Are you a part time compliance officer with a day job? What is your time allocation for the management of an AML/CTF program?

This program will work through the intricacies of managing all the moving parts of a program and looks at common issues found in AML/CTF programs.

Most programs were implemented in 2007 and, apart from changes around KYC, most programs have not moved down the maturity path. There has been, and continues to be, significant change. Has your program matured or is it still taking a minimalist approach? Have the board actually had any relevant training? When was the last time that you had an independent review? Was it actually independent? Does your risk assessment flow into your transaction monitoring?

Using real examples as case studies, this program is designed to help you understand:

  • The threat environment and areas of risk;
  • The importance of taking a holistic view;
  • The importance of your risk assessment in driving your control framework;
  • Where do the risks actually sit;
  • The importance of making compliance a KPI or hurdle to performance bonus achievement;
  • The importance of knowing who you are dealing with;
  • That the customers of your customer really are a concern;
  • Why the boards messaging gets lost somewhere in middle management;
  • What are you monitoring for and do your rules actually help you manage your risk;

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's most well known and photographed landmarks. It is the world's largest (but not the longest) steel arch bridge with the top of the bridge standing 134 metres above the harbour.

Sydney's most famous beach attracts large numbers of tourists to Bondi throughout the year with many Irish and British tourists spending Christmas Day there. Bondi Beach features many popular cafes, restaurants and hotels, some with spectacular views of the beach and surrounding headlands. The beach itself is approximately one kilometer long.

A lively harbourside precinct, Darling Harbour is just a 10-minute walk from Sydney city centre. One of Sydney's largest dining, shopping and entertainment precincts has a full calendar of outdoor events as well as one of the city's most restful spots, the Chinese Gardens of Friendship.

The Museum of Contemporary Art (abbreviated MCA) in Sydney, Australia is an Australian museum solely dedicated to exhibiting, interpreting and collecting contemporary art, both from across Australia and around the world.
