Fraud Prevention AML

Fraud Prevention AML Training Course

This is a comprehensive introductory course on two of the most challenging related areas of risk management for any financial institution. Many areas of financial fraud have grown dramatically, and the cost to the EU economy of fraud as a whole is now estimated EUR 400 billion. Organised crime is growing dramatically, and money laundering controls are a ‘must-have’. Companies cannot afford to be the ‘weakest link’ in a dynamic struggle to contain these threats.
Delegates will be provided with the latest thinking on how to systematically combat these challenges, within an overall risk management framework. It is thus suitable for a wide range of managers within financial institutions.
The course applies the Process Approach©, which systematically examines all areas within retail and commercial financial institutions for fraud. It is taught within the framework of the Basel II regulations for Operational Risk Management which cover internal and external fraud, and the Third EU Directive on Money Laundering.
Delegates should expect to leave the course with a broad knowledge of where fraud is to be found, and the key responses. They should also expect to be assisted to expose and contain both the every day attempts made by fraudsters and the creative and original challenges that are increasingly likely as financial technology develops.

The course will also give an overview of the major industry fraud avoidance sharing schemes and the data available. As specialised topics, information security, market fraud and money laundering are covered briefly in outline.

Who should attend?
AML, Fraud, Risk, Fraud Scoring, and AML and Fraud Investigations Managers, who have responsibility for managing AML or fraud, as well as Credit, Audit, Compliance, Legal, HR and Data Management staff who will need to have a good understanding of these challenges.
