Although financial institutions have been managing BSA operations per the regulation requirements, the change in focus to appropriate BSA/AML/OFAC risk assessment has been coming increasingly important. Regulators look to the bank for insurance and evidence that BSA operations are appropriately performing risk assessments. Appropriate risk assessments are essential in a bank’s strategic planning and development, understanding the banking risk threshold as well as assisting in OFAC compliance.

The areas of focus outlined in this webinar are based on best industry practice, supervisory experience and cover the major components of an effective BSA risk assessment program that audit focuses on.
