    Niki Pryor, Verafin Recorded: Jul 11 2019 24 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    FinCEN’s 2014 guidance outlines BSA obligations including SAR filing requirements for banking Marijuana-Related Businesses (MRBs). Whether or not your institution chooses to bank these businesses, it is imperative to your compliance program that you identify all potential MRBs in your customer base, even if they did not self-identify at account opening.

    To ensure you identify all potential MRBs in your existing customer base and complete the due diligence necessary to understand the nature of business — you likely have to rely on time-consuming manual reports and keyword searches.

    This 20-minute session details strategies to overcome the challenges of identifying high-risk customers for more effective due diligence, targeted monitoring, and enhanced reporting. Learn how Verafin uses artificial intelligence and open-source data in high-risk customer finders to automatically identify Marijuana-Related Businesses.

    Synthetic Identity Fraud: Unreal Identities Result in Real Fraud Losses
    Scott Peddle Recorded: Jul 4 2019 50 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    In this digital age, vast amounts of compromised customer information from data breaches and fraud scams is readily available for purchase on the dark web. To further their illicit schemes, fraudsters can use your customer’s personal and financial information to create fictional or partially fabricated identities in an emerging trend known as synthetic identity fraud.

    With combinations of fake and real identifying information, fraudsters use these synthetic identities to apply for new accounts, products or auto loans. Crime rings often utilize synthetic identities in large, ongoing financial fraud schemes, repeating these crimes at multiple institutions, exponentially increasing the potential for loss.

    Join us as we discuss the challenges facing financial institutions when combatting synthetic identity fraud in various forms of financial crime, such as loan fraud, deposit fraud, electronic transfer fraud, and new account fraud.

    In this presentation we will discuss:

    - The scale of synthetic identity fraud and how it relates to other financial crimes
    - Common ploys fraudsters use to commit synthetic identity fraud
    - Challenges facing financial institutions to mitigate fraud losses involving - synthetic identity fraud and other evasion methods

    Amiram Pinto, Product Manager, NICE Recorded: Jul 3 2019 32 mins
    Fraud is on the rise, and contact centers are a target. It's time to fight back. Be proactive and outsmart fraudsters with technology.
    The latest advances in machine learning techniques and analytics combined with biometrics capabilities takes contact center protection to a whole new level. Contact centers now have the ability to expose previously unsuspected fraudulent activities. That empowers them to not only prevent known fraudsters from attacking, but more impressively, expose new fraudsters that were operating "under the radar" for a long time. In the ongoing response to sophisticated fraud attacks, the creation of high-quality fraudster watchlists from historical recordings – and automatically populating and updating them – is a revolution in the fight against fraud

    Employee Fraud: Understanding the Threat from Within
    John Hawkin, Verafin Recorded: Jun 27 2019 42 mins
    Presented by Verafin

    In order to protect themselves from evolving external threats, financial institutions continue to strengthen their fraud controls by deploying fraud detection solutions across a variety of channels. However, it is imperative that financial institutions do not overlook the threat from within.

    Financial institutions are especially vulnerable to employee fraud, as fraudsters within the organization have access to large amounts of personal identification information and financial transactional data, along with access to customer accounts. While these schemes can add up to significant fraud losses for financial institutions and their customers, they can also enable other illicit activity and pose significant compliance concerns.

    Join us for this insightful presentation, as we discuss the financial and reputational risks, as well as the potential compliance concerns of employee fraud. Learn the tactics used by internal bad actors and best practices to mitigate losses, including how appropriate monitoring of both employee access logs and transactional activity can alert institutions to fraudulent activity by employees.

    In this educational presentation, you will learn:
    - The scale of the crime of employee fraud, including the potential for losses and compliance considerations
    - Review tactics internal bad actors use to commit fraud against financial institutions
    - Best practices to mitigate losses and protect your institution from internal threats, - including appropriate monitoring and fraud controls

    Figuring out how dirty data can be converted into useful insights can be a pain. Information about your customers can be easily retrieved if you have correct and actionable data that can be worked on. AI can only do wonders if this is the case.

Or how sure are you that the data you’ve entered into your AI algorithm is correct? To predict what your banking customers are looking for, you need to have the data cleaned and all set for AI initiatives to succeed.

But according to Ardent Partners’ State of ePayables 2019 report, even best-in-class organizations are still left with invoice exceptions, only about half of the suppliers submitting electronic invoices, and low early payment opportunities to improve working capital. Is that the best that we can do? Is your AP department truly digital?

    Join Ardent Partners and Tradeshift for our upcoming webinar where we will:
    • Deep dive into the challenges faced by the AP department and the drivers that shape AP leaders’ priorities on the quest to digitize
    • Present the outcomes you should be looking for in an AP transformation journey and how you should go from electronic to digital
    • Explore what best-in-class organizations do and how you can leverage to take your AP department to the next level
    • Identify quick wins and long-term strategies to improve operations and results going beyond best-in-class

  • Digital assets – an opportunity or risk for securities services?
    Digital assets – an opportunity or risk for securities services?
    Morgan Davis, Reporter, GlobalCapital Sep 11 2019 8:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Digital assets are taking the industry by storm and growing at an unprecedented pace. But as the world embraces the next iterations of technology in banking, questions arise. Do we have clear definitions and understandings of these digital assets? How do differing definitions by regulators lead to challenges and conflicts? Have we accounted for the different risks that this technology brings about? Our webinar will find out.

    This discussion will cover the following topics:

    Understanding digital assets
    - The world of digital assets lacks clear definition, and too often people’s minds jump to Bitcoin or the like. So what are we talking about when we say “digital assets”?
    - What are asset backed tokens and how can we use them? How should we understand the role of tokenization?
    - How does differing risk appetite globally change the understanding of and demand for digital assets?

    Tackling regulations
    - Regulators are often stymied by new products that don’t fit nicely into traditional buckets. How are regulators looking at digital assets? How does this differ by country?
    - How does the regulators’ understanding of digital assets challenge new participants? Does that leave any wiggle room for opportunity?
    - Where are the gaps in regulations?

    Challenges and looking forward
    - There are still inefficiencies in the use of digital assets that pose challenges. How do we remedy this?
    - Looking at the example of distributed ledger technology, how do we understand the potential while balancing the flaws and challenges of the technology?
    - What risks do digital assets pose? Are we realistic enough about these risks and how they balance with the benefits of digitalization?
    - What potentials of the use of digital assets are not yet being realized? What’s next for the industry?

  • Financial benchmark regulation in the EU
    Financial benchmark regulation in the EU
    Peter Green and Jeremy Jennings Mares, Morrison & Foerster; Shabina Qaiser, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Sep 17 2019 3:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    This webinar will focus on the current and future state of regulation of financial benchmarks used in the EU, both EU and non-EU benchmarks. The EU’s Benchmarks Regulation imposes a range of stringent requirements aimed at ensuring the integrity and reliability of benchmarks used in a vast number of financial transactions. Although the provisions of the Regulation are already in force, transitional provisions mean that many index providers will only be required to comply with the Regulation from 1 January 2020 or, in the case of critical benchmarks and non-EU benchmarks, 1 January 2022. After these dates, EU banks, fund managers and other financial institutions will be unable to use financial benchmarks in a huge range of funds, securities, derivatives and other financial instruments, unless they comply with the provisions of the Regulation. In particular, this webinar will discuss what financial markets participants need to know about:

    •Which persons/entities are affected by the Regulation
    •When an index or benchmark will fall within the scope of the Regulation, in particular its restrictions on benchmark use for certain transactions
    •Specific rules that affect certain benchmarks, such as critical benchmarks and commodity benchmarks
    •The timing for compliance with the Regulation
    •The specific provisions concerning the use of benchmarks from non-EU providers

  • The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    The enterprise AI conundrum: Build or buy?
    VentureBeat Sep 17 2019 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    It’s do or die time: According to Gartner, the global business value from AI leapt by 70 percent last year, to $1.2 trillion, and it will triple to $3.9 trillion in 2022. So enterprises interested in getting on the AI train should jump now -- before you lose some major competitive advantages.

    Of course, the biggest challenge for enterprise companies is figuring out the build versus buy question. There’s the build-in-house model of AI implementation, with open-source toolkits and expensive, but essential new hires. The number of startups offering full-service consultation, with set-up and service is proliferating, but who do you choose, and what do you pay for? And somewhere in between those options there’s the artificial intelligence as a service (AIaaS) approach — and again, the field of vendors is crowded with options.

    There’s no easy, one-size-fits-all answer — but there are experts with real insight into how to identify your business needs, and where to get started implementing AI in the most cost-effective, profitable way possible for your enterprise. To get up front and personal with pros in the trenches now, register now for this VB Live event!

    You'll learn:
    *How to identify your AI needs
    *How to identify your decision criteria
    *The pros and cons of build and buy, and the best situations for each
    *How to get a handle on the true costs of both build and buy
  • Corporate Secretary Webinar – Handling registered-agent challenges
    Corporate Secretary Webinar – Handling registered-agent challenges
    Corporate Secretary and Computershare Sep 25 2019 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    As a company grows – whether organically or through M&A – staying on top of registered-agent issues becomes more complex and demanding. Whether corporate secretaries choose to handle the registered-agent role in-house or, as most do, engage a third party, they need to ensure the work is handled accurately and efficiently.
    A growing business can find itself having to be on top of handling lawsuits and other legal documents in up to 50 states. Failing to do so accurately and on time can leave the company at risk of stiff penalties. This all adds to an ever-expanding workload for corporate secretaries as they become increasingly involved in areas such as corporate strategy, shareholder engagement and ESG issues.
