Having implemented an AML/CTF program you’ve identified how reliant you are on other businesses or teams performing core pieces of it. In many cases some of it is outsourced to 3rd party providers or you are reliant on the accuracy of their algorithms and lists. We have all heard stories, urban myth thought they may be, about business units or teams just not performing key functions or giving key functions no priority. Are declarations of compliance suitable without being supported by evidence?

Whether you are a board member, in the business or in compliance the ability to identify issues quickly and stop them becoming systemic is what stands between you and the business or you being fined.

How do you monitor compliance with your program? How can you provide assurance to the board and business units that the entity is actually complying with its own program?

In developing your assurance program you need to understand how various functions are performed, how effective, how accurate and timely your controls really are.

This program will work through the intricacies of developing and managing an ongoing assurance program. We all understand that there are many moving parts in any program so what are the areas you should focus on and where do your weaknesses lie?
