Perceptions vs Reality: Fighting Financial Crime in International Business

This one-day symposium seeks to shift perceptions in line with reality. Cyprus can still suffer from ‘headlines of the past’ when in fact compliance officers are taking the fight to financial crime, be it in Financial Services or the large community of Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions.

We will hear about the efforts toward the transposition of 5AMLD and thoughts on Cyprus’ MONEYVAL report, which will be discussed at their next plenary meeting in December 2019. Our experts will look back on how adverse media stories have affected reputational risks in relation to financial crime, and tactics to manage communications in light of such events.

We learn of recent regulatory guidance and how to operationalise this to mitigate financial crime risks associated with Virtual Asset Service Providers. We’ll also cover emerging sanctions risks and how to respond to conflicting sanctions regimes.

This year, delegates will participate in a practical and interactive training session on business risk assessments. Aimed at compliance officers in Financial Institutions and those with ‘obliged entities’, including fiduciary services, accounting and audit, legal practitioners, real estate and gaming & gambling, we will learn the challenges of incorporating the results of BRA into their daily business activities and Financial Crime Prevention Training.
