How The Bad Guys Operate: AML Compliance vs Risk Management

DATE: 1st March 2022
TIME: 12:30pm GMT

AML regulations provide an essential framework for lawyers to mitigate the risk of committing a serious money laundering offence. They also provide guidance for criminals looking to exploit the system. Compliance, by itself, doesn't remove risk, unless lawyers know how the bad guys operate and what to watch out for.

Join Thirdfort and a panel of leading compliance pros and fraud experts as we shine a light on the nefarious tactics of money launderers.
