    • In May, 2016 the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) issued final rules under the Bank Secrecy Act to clarify and strengthen customer due diligence requirements for: Banks; brokers or dealers in securities; mutual funds; and futures commission merchants and introducing brokers in commodities. The rules contain explicit customer due diligence requirements and include a new requirement to identify and verify the identity of beneficial owners of legal entity customers.

      Join a distinguished panel of industry professionals to discuss what the rule requires and what it means to your firm. More importantly, the event will include a practical discussion of what firms should be considering and doing in advance of the rule’s May 2018 final applicability date. Topics to be covered include:

      · How do financial institutions (“FIs”) intend to identify and verify Beneficial Owners (“BOs”) and Control Persons (“CPs”)?
      · What is a “customer profile” and what do you do with it?
      · How will the rule affect transaction monitoring, suspicious activity investigations and reporting from both a technology and compliance program standpoint?
      · What risk-based trigger events are FIs considering when updating beneficial ownership information?

    • Better Anti Money Laundering (AML) Compliance with Hortonworks
      Better Anti Money Laundering (AML) Compliance with Hortonworks Vamsi K Chemitiganti, General Manager - Financial Services, Hortonworks Recorded: Nov 24 2015 3:00 pm UTC 59 mins
    • In 2015, it goes without saying that Banking is an increasingly complex as well as a global business. Leading Banks now generate a large amount of revenue in Global markets and this is generally true of all major worldwide banks. Financial crime is a huge concern for banking institutions given the complexity of the products they offer their millions of customers, large global branch networks and operations spanning the spectrum of financial services. The BSA (Bank Secrecy Act) requires U.S. financial institutions to assist U.S. government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering. Specifically, the act requires financial institutions to keep records of cash purchases of negotiable instruments, to file reports of cash transactions exceeding $10,000 (daily aggregate amount), and to report suspicious activity that might signify money laundering, tax evasion, or other criminal activities. After the terrorist attacks of 2001, the US Patriot Act was passed into law by Congress. The Patriot Act augments the BSA with Know Your Customer (KYC) legislation which mandates that Banking institutions be completely aware of their customer’s identities and transaction patterns with a view of monitoring account activity. This webinar discusses the key business issues and technology considerations in moving your AML regime to a Hadoop based infrastructure and the key benefits in doing so.

    • How to Stop Wasting Money and Start Managing Cybersecurity
      How to Stop Wasting Money and Start Managing Cybersecurity Shay Zandani, CEO, Cytegic Recorded: Jan 21 2015 9:00 am UTC 40 mins
    • In today’s world, decision-makers are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of cyber-threat information and cyber-security technologies available.

      CISOs who are tasked with securing business assets in face of rapidly evolving threats, find themselves with insufficient capability to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of their organization security apparatus and equipped with inadequate tools for determining optimal resource allocation, while constantly having to display the risk levels posed by cyber threats to the organizations’ management. It is nearly impossible to estimate if money spent on one technology could have had better security and business impact invested elsewhere.

      This Webinar will present the challenging state of affairs today and will suggest how to remedy the situation using automation, analytical tools and intelligence forecasting and simulation.

    • Blockchain For Identity Authentication Infrastructure
      Blockchain For Identity Authentication Infrastructure Professor Michael Mainelli, FCCA FCSI FBCS (Z/Yen Group Limited) Recorded: Mar 14 2017 9:00 am UTC 49 mins
    • Mutual distributed ledger (MDL) identity schemes could empower people with personal data storage and management, permission frameworks for access by third parties such as banks insurers or governments, and even distributed reputation ratings.

      Such applications could reduce financial fraud, costs, and crime, and increase returns, confidence, and security. MDLs are uniquely supportive of controlled distribution and sharing of digitally-signed documentation and could form the backbone to identity and authentication systems worldwide. In fact, some claim that identity authentication infrastructure is the ‘killer app’ for MDLs rather than payments.

      While anti-money-laundering/know-your-customer/ultimate-beneficial-ownership processes are arduous for high-net-worth individuals, about 2.4 billion poor people worldwide lack official identification, about 1.5 billion over the age of 14.

      This webinar will examine how MDLs might aid both rich and poor.

    • There has been a lot of debate in the media on the extent of the money service business (MSB) sectors’ adaptation and adherence to creating a solid compliance regime with respect to AML/CTF regulations.

    • Yes, there are annual studies that calculate the cost of the average data breach. And yes, within weeks of a major data breach the headlines shift from number of records lost to estimated cost. So it is unsurprising, if troubling, that a recent survey of enterprise executives indicated that the #1 thing they are most concerned about protecting from cyber attack is customer data. However, there are other important aspects to making a business case for improving your security posture. This webcast will discuss what we feel you should be concerned about losing and why…and it’s not just customer records that require costly breach notification.
