2017 BSA/AML Workshop
Paradise Point Hotel & Spa • San Diego, CA

BSA/AML continues to be a heightened area of concern for agencies, a trend that is expected to continue in 2017.

Agencies have put a renewed focus on making sure banks know their customers’ entire banking relationship, as well as assess their existing and future risk. Banks failing to do the appropriate due diligence on a customer to comply with the Bank Secrecy Act could be symptomatic of broader compliance problems, including a violation of consumer protection laws.

Most banks already have comprehensive systems in place to track suspicious activity. But knowing each customer and how to assess individual risk is more dependent on human judgment, and cannot be easily outsourced to a support system. Some observers said banks may have to improve their training of personnel to look deeper for potential violations.
