It will discuss BSA definitions, OFAC rules, Currency Transaction Reporting (CTR), Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR) including additional requirements, such as 314(a), PEPs, and Pouch activities and much more.

Why Should You Attend:

The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) rules require risk assessments for all industries subject to these laws. The scoping and planning of an examination process is guided by the examiner’s review of the BSA/AML risk assessment. Information gained from the examiner’s review of the risk assessment drives the scoping and planning process as well as the evaluation of the adequacy of the BSA/AML compliance program.

A part of the BSA/AML program is to understand how to deal with risk profiling, funds transfers, Currency Transaction Report (CTR) and more. From your development of the risk assessment, you can drive how to handle all of these tasks.

Topic Background:

Oftentimes, an institution will create a BSA/AML risk assessment to mark such requirement from the checklist of items needed to meet the BSA/AML regulations. However, the risk assessment can be used to drive the entire program and determine resource needs. Before upgrading software, replacing software, adding staff, and more, it might be wise to review the BSA/AML risk assessment. Knowing the higher risk areas of your institution will help determine if those resources need to be changed, how to change them, and what staff to use. Instead of shelving your risk assessment until the next required annual review, use it to create efficiencies and effective processes in your organization.

A part of the BSA/AML program is to understand how to deal with risk profiling, funds transfers, CTRs, funds transfers, and more. From your development of the risk assessment, you can drive how to handle all of these tasks. While you must file CTRs and perform funds transfer recordkeeping, you might choose to make that an off the shelf software due to your volume. However, you may choose to put more money into software upgrades for risk profiling due to the higher volume and risk associated with your commercial lending product. Your risk assessment can be a powerful tool to ensure you are spending money and resources to impact the biggest areas for your institution.
