AML/OFAC Risk Assessment – The Cornerstone of an Effective Compliance Shop

In this training program, attendees will learn to define AML/OFAC risk assessment and the importance of increased regulation of these assessments. The program will additionally focus on AML/OFAC risk assessment best practices.

Risk assessments are the backbone of any well-built anti-money laundering and Office of Foreign Assets Control compliance program. An efficient and effective program cannot be developed without knowing where one’s risks reside. Today, many businesses—both financial and non-financial institutions—are conducting these assessments to uncover risks, design strong compliance programs, and mitigate their exposure. There are many decisions that need to be made when you decide to conduct an AML/OFAC risk assessment.
