Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will discuss the current “industry best practice” for the alert/case management investigation process, and any guidance from the regulators. The instructor will cover a sample methodology meant to demonstrate what your institution may be doing, and opportunities to improve it. Participants will understand about the rules/scenarios thresholds that are leading to alerts/cases. It will help you answer

  • What is your escalation process?
  • What policies guide your investigation process?
  • What policies dictate when you file an alert/case?

"Managing the Alert/Case Clearing Investigation Process - BSA/AML/OFAC Compliance" - This course is approved by NASBA (National Association of State Boards of Accountancy). Attendees of Live Webinar are eligible for 1.2 CPE credit up on full completion of the course.

Why Should You Attend:

The art and science of Alert/Case Investigation has matured along with other elements of BSA/AML/OFAC Compliance, spurred on by ever more stringent regulations and stricter adherence to the letter and spirit of the rules by examiners. As with many other of the elements of BSA Compliance, there is little official guidance. OFAC has provided some guidance as to how to clear and manage sanctions "hits."

In this training session, we will explore the components of a loosely defined "industry practice" alert and case clearing methodology. What are the corresponding quality control issues and the importance of an alert/case management system? It will help you answer the listed below questions:

  • What makes good investigation?
  • What is enough to determine the difference between a false positive and true positive?
  • What constitutes a practical and proper escalation process?
  • Who decides when the case becomes a matter for filing?
  • At what point do excessive numbers of false positives lead to revision of rules/scenarios thresholds?

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • The industry standard for the investigation process.
  • Alert and case clearing methodology.
  • The quality control issues that can arise.

  • Determining the difference between a false positive and a true positive.
