ACAMS Greater Twin Cities Virtual Chapter Event – Easiest Catch: Don’t Be Another Fish in the Dark ‘Net’

Free Event
Please note that CAMS credit for this virtual event is available to members of the Chapter only.

As COVID-19 continues to impact our everyday lives, our digital landscape has allowed for a degree of preparedness and information sharing unprecedented during past pandemics. In many ways, it is the only thing preserving our capacity to carry out “business as usual” with remote work becoming the new normal for many. This shift has increased our reliance on the Internet of Things and our digital devices, creating new opportunities for cyberattacks. With this in mind, conserving and strengthening cybersecurity is an absolute necessity, acknowledging always that where we gain convenience, we lose security.

The First Annual Public-Private Partnerships Summit– Fighting Financial Crimes & Terrorist Financing

Please join Thomson Reuters in an exclusive event highlighting the importance of effective Public-Private Partnerships. This year’s Summit will focus on addressing the challenges organizations face solving some of the toughest issues of our day and how the partnerships between law enforcement and the financial industry are critical to combat the financing of criminal activity and terrorism. Plan to join our faculty of recognized experts and officials as they discuss trends and how to develop successful relationships between government entities and financial institutions.

You will also hear from law enforcement officials on the ground on December 2nd, 2015, as they share first-hand accounts of how the tragic terrorist attacks in San Bernardino highlighted many examples of successful public-private partnerships, including how private sector technology helped put an end to the tragedy and save lives.

Plus, you won’t want to miss the riveting insights from two of the most notable former federal law enforcement officials in the country on the topic of the capture of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Learn what partnerships were leveraged and how banks can be even more vigilant to stop international money-laundering. From the cameras of 60 Minutes to your stage…

Law Enforcement Appreciation Event (GTC)

Partnering with Law Enforcement – Our Mission and Appreciation as a Community

The event includes participation from and recognition for both local and national (i.e. IRS, FBI, US Postal Inspector) enforcement agencies. Attendees will have an opportunity to directly network with law enforcement.

Whether it’s detecting and reporting possible financial crime or terrorist activity, the partnership between law enforcement and the financial industry is built on trust and respect, with our mission being to protect the community, institution and country. As we continue to combat this effort together, the ACAMS Greater Twin City Chapter (GTCC) would like to celebrate this partnership with a half day learning event, followed by networking and the opportunity to end the day with a Minnesota favorite pastime of enjoying a Twins baseball game.

The learning event will kick-off with a discussion on the recent terrorist activity (i.e. San Bernardino, Paris) with Dennis Lormel. Dennis is retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), following over 30 years of government service, almost 28 years as a Special Agent in the FBI. Immediately following the terrorist attacks of September 2001, Mr. Lormel formulated, established and directed the FBI’s comprehensive terrorist financing initiative. Dennis was the first chief of the FBI’s Terrorist Financing Operations Section. Mr. Lormel will share some best practices in helping your institution identify the red flags in detecting possible terrorist activity.

The learning event will also include different law enforcement panel discussions related to some of the current scams and crimes they are seeing here in Minnesota and across the nation. Law enforcement will share related case studies and the SAR Review Team will discuss what information and data provided in the SAR draws their attention to your case. The discussions will include:

  • IRS scams
  • Business email compromise scams
  • Elder abuse
  • Human trafficking
  • Important data to include on a SAR
