Program Overview

The IBSC and the FDIC Atlanta Region are pleased to announce our BSA/AML Examination Workshop for 2019. This area has been challenging for banks to address given the comprehensive scope of bank activities that are subject to anti-money laundering controls. FDIC examiners will discuss recurring examination findings from BSA/AML examinations they have led in South Carolina during 2018 as well as what you can do to avoid them. Additionally, institutions are increasingly relying on automated suspicious activity monitoring solutions yet this approach may provide a new set of complexities. Beneficial ownership rules will likewise present new challenges to bank's due diligence programs. Finally, new products and services may pose unintended challenges to your BSA/AML risk management program if not properly integrated. Therefore, experts from the FDIC will specifically address these concerns as well. We anticipate you will receive a number of practical insights that will strengthen your BSA/AML program and better prepare you for your next examination.
