ACAMS Vancouver: Best Practices to Mitigate, Detect and Investigate Third Party Risk

Oct 18 2017
Vancouver, BC

In today’s climate of increased regulatory requirements coupled with stricter enforcement, knowing your clientele is now entrenched as a critical business imperative. To ensure compliance with a host of Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Anti-Corruption & Anti- Bribery Acts (FCPA, CFPOA, UKBA, CCA, etc.) it’s important to understand the entities (employees, vendors, etc.) with which you do business, so as to maintain an ethical ecosystem.

In this session, we will discuss best practices to manage third-party risk, such as:

  • Key reporting requirements for internal stakeholders and regulators
  • Assessing and building sustainable internal controls
  • Effective data management to determine heightened risk individuals and entities
  • Collaborative approaches to enhanced due diligence
  • Training and educating employees and counterparties
