ACAMS 19th Annual AML & Anti-Financial Crime Conference - Virtual Las Vegas
This three-day training and networking event, September 29 - October 1, will gather high-level financial regulators, law enforcement officials and subject-matter experts to discuss the most pressing challenges facing the compliance sector today; including evolving supervisory expectations related to the COVID-19 pandemic, technical hurdles tied to risk-modeling and data integrity concerns, and emerging typologies for sanctions busting and elder-abuse fraud.
Attendees will gain the methods and tools to make their compliance programs stronger with question-and-answer sessions and panel discussions tailored to meet their needs. As part of its effort to bring the compliance community together, ACAMS will also host a session offering guidance on how to best leverage new industry contacts for the good of attendees’ institutions and professional careers.
