Job-specific BSA training has been emphasized in the BSA Examination Manual for several years. Frontline BSA responsibility is a huge part of a successful examination process. Simply doing the same training program each year will not be adequate. Money laundering activities continue to evolve and frontline training must keep pace with emerging risks. This session will cover the basic expectations for completing CTRs; scenarios for reporting suspicious activity and recent trends in SARs; and the framework for an effective customer identification program for opening new accounts. Join us for a fast-paced review of the basics and also learn about emerging money laundering red flags in 2017.
