Counter Terrorism Financing – Latest European Initiatives
Moderator: Samantha Sheen | Speakers: Tom Keatinge, Andy McDonald and Gavin Peniston-Bird
About this talk
This year the European Commission published its Action Plan for Strengthening the Fight against Terrorism, in which it highlighted that the recent attacks in the European Union and beyond underlined the need for the EU across all Member States to prevent and fight terrorism. Additional recommendations and measures have also been proposed by Member States, including the UK’s Select Committee report on fighting radicalization. This webinar will look at some of the initiatives currently underway in some European Member States and how compliance professionals could contribute towards them.
• Insight into the measures to be implemented EU-wide to counter terrorist financing
• Understand why there is a focus on financing as a means to combat terrorist activities
• Assessment of the types of changes that might be needed to existing AML /CFT compliance programs as part of these initiatives.
