A One-Day Bank Secrecy Act Continuing Education Program
     Tuesday, November 27, 2012
     Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel, Iselin, NJ

Today’s bank regulatory environment has never been more challenging.  On top of the myriad changes from Dodd-Frank and regulatory reform, BSA compliance continues to be integral to the success of every financial institution.  From mandatory e-filing and new “dynamic” formats for CTR, DOEP and SAR reporting to enhanced exam expectations, the constancy of change continues to reinforce the need for continuing BSA/AML education. 

This program considers recent developments and the emergence of new risks.  Regulatory guidance and rulemaking are among the highlights, along with recent enforcement actions and examination findings.  Recent fines have extended to both the financial institution as well as to individual officers and directors.  In-depth analysis of FinCEN initiatives are covered, including new and proposed requirements.  This full-day working seminar is designed to explore in detail the nuances of managing risks associated with heightened expectations of BSA/AML compliance and to help financial institution professionals satisfy mandatory training requirements and benefit from networking and shared knowledge opportunities.   Read more
