In today’s rapidly evolving financial landscape, the skills and resources needed by Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Officers and others who support a bank’s BSA, Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Countering the Financing of Terrorism (CFT), and Office of Financial Control (OFAC) compliance efforts have become more critical than ever before. As guardians of financial integrity, they play a pivotal role in safeguarding their institutions against financial crimes and ensuring regulatory compliance. To fulfill this vital role effectively, it is imperative that BSA Officers and their colleagues remain acutely aware of regulatory requirements, stay updated on fraud and other criminal trends, and continuously refine their skills through collaborative learning and sharing of information with peers.

Agenda items are based on relevant topics relating to BSA/AML/CFT and OFAC and will include current updates and best practices, such as:
• Policies and Procedures
• Risk assessments and gap identification
• Culture of Compliance
• Change Management
• Board Reporting
• Training programs
• Peer BSA exam and audit findings
• Enforcement actions and other sanctions
• Automated AML systems
• Fraud detection and prevention
• Professional development and continuity planning
• Deep dives into technical requirements:
  –CTR, SAR and other reporting
  –Information Sharing – 314(a) and 314(b)
  –Responding to alerts and Performing Investigations
  –OFAC compliance
  –Customer Identification Programs (CIP)
