Pandemics to recession: finding AML and ABC synergies in tough times

K2 Intelligence/Financial Integrity Network


During times of economic upheaval and uncertainty it is natural for businesses to focus their strategic efforts on continuity planning and shoring up resources to weather the storm. Though increased focus on AML and ABC measures may not seem critical at this time, loosening this oversight could cause major issues down the line. In this webinar, our experts will discuss how organisations can leverage compliance resources in order to maintain a robust programme even in times of turmoil, including:

  • Reducing fraud and bribery risk through combined workflow and case management strategies, data analytics, risk rating engines and alert review teams
  • Customising technology by combining information from AML, sanctions, fraud and ABC sources to build more robust metrics reporting and risk trending
  • Cross-training staff to cover instances of increased activity or shortages between various functions
