  • Are you banking Marijuana-Related Businesses?
    Are you banking Marijuana-Related Businesses?
    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.

    Highlights of this 20-minute presentation:

    - Review of highlights from FinCEN Guidance, including red flags, due diligence requirements, and compliance obligations for Marijuana-Related Businesses.
    - Discussion on the challenges of identifying Marijuana-Related Business in your existing customer base, who did not self-identify at account opening.
    - Overview of the benefits of an Intelligent Segmentation approach to your high-risk customer management program with a focus on MRBs.
    - How to get alerted to Marijuana-Related Businesses and other high-risk customers in your existing customer base with Verafin’s high-risk-finder analysis.

  • Do You know How to Protect Your Customers from the Unknown?
    Do You know How to Protect Your Customers from the Unknown?
    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

    How will investors respond to green fiscal policy and a new wave of central bank action on climate targets? Join us to find out.

    Following the G20 Osaka Summit, RI is bringing together global central banking leaders to consider how ESG and climate risk integration into central banking and monetary policy across G20 member states could influence the investment decision-making of global investors.

    Join this 10-minute chat with leading cybersecurity lawyer Dr Alexander Duisberg and regulatory technology expert David Noble, who will answer these burning questions:

    - How are financial services institutions coping with the growing number and complexity of global cybersecurity regulations?

    - Are banks ready for the new German cybersecurity legislation, and is it likely to have broader impact across Europe – or indeed the rest of the world?

    - What should you be doing to monitor regulatory change more effectively and assess its impact on your business?

    This unique webinar will dig into the details of how ESG risks and opportunities can have material impacts on bank balance sheets, investor returns and the long-term financial health of the global economy. The discussion will consider key ESG trends in the banking sector from the perspective of reporting banks, investors, and one of the world’s largest investment data analysts. Join us to learn how responsible investment and corporate governance policies are helping to raise professional and ethical banking standards, and how action on ESG themes is evolving in a time of market turbulence.
