PDF Brochure

After 48 years, compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) continues to be a top priority of the regulators. The financial industry is required to take an increased leading role in the prevention of money laundering and potential terrorist funding. Examiners are increasing their focus to ensure financial institutions are complying with all aspects of the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and its many regulatory requirements.

The focus of this program is to provide an update to the BSA laws and regulations and to provide valuable information that will help you enhance your BSA/AML Compliance Program and to help you prepare for your next BSA examination and audit.

This two-day program features industry experts, law enforcement, and regulators who will discuss the latest changing BSA topics and offer tips and tools to develop and manage an effective BSA program. 

Attendees will also participate in case studies, review "real world” situations, and develop "take-aways” that can be implemented back at their banks. Attendees will also benefit from shared knowledge, networking, and best practices.
