BSA Series: Risk Assessments, Models, Validation and Tuning

Don’t miss this deeper dive into the tools that protect your organization from financial crimes.

BSA (Bank Secrecy Act) key components continue to remain an integral part of our AML (Anti Money Laundering) as risk assessments, models and audits continue to frame up the building called your program. You don’t want to get surprised this year on your BSA examination when the examiners ask to see your model validation. New processes bring new tools to analyze data but your process and model have to be checked. From risk assessments to audits, we continue to self-examine our own AMLs for accuracy, exposure and controls.
