This seminar is part of the on-going training program which every firm is legally obliged to provide to its employees.
The latest changes in the Anti-money Laundering regulatory framework as well as the recent updates in the guidelines of our competent authorities create the need for further training and education. At the same time, the recent money laundering scandals as well as the recent cases of terrorism create additional need to form a strong culture of compliance awareness at every level of the organization.
This program intents to stress the effectiveness of the internal systems controls and procedures that are developed to detect money laundering and gives an emphasis on the practical aspect of money laundering through the presentation of real-life money laundering schemes and examples.
This program is specifically designed for professionals who have interaction with the customers and are responsible for applying customer due diligence in their day-to-day work.
