Risk Management Boot Camp

Designing and implementing Anti-Financial Crime (AFC) risk management strategies can be a real struggle.

We asked our expert trainer Denisse Rudich how this boot camp will help.

ACAMS: What makes risk management so tough?
Denisse: A risk assessment process can be really difficult to complete if the risk taxonomy isn’t properly defined. You need clear language, and clearly defined roles and responsibilities. Without this, you’ll have misunderstandings, delays, difficulty in aggregating results and frankly…a lot of rework.
ACAMS: What will people learn from this training, that they can’t get from a book?
Denisse: People will walk away with:
  • A clearer understanding of what the regulator needs (and wants!) to see
  • A nuts and bolts understanding of carrying out a risk assessment…in an operational context
  • A practical approach to help them identify areas of concern across the landscape of their specific business
Denisse: My goal is to make you more confident in this tricky area!

You’ll examine real-life sample risk appetite statements, then draft one yourself for your own institution.

For the 360-degree view on risk management, don’t miss this unique full-day event.   

Our highly interactive programme will cover:

  • Regulatory requirements for conducting AFC risk assessments
  • Different AFC assessment frameworks. How to collect information required.
  • Reporting formats for presenting assessment processes and findings
  • Controls to mitigate and prevent identified AFC risks
  • Your own risk appetite statement
