ACAMS 14th Annual AML & Financial Crime Conference - Europe

Jaa

Regulatory changes and technological disruption are currently reshaping European Anti-Financial Crime initiatives. ACAMS’ 14th Annual European AML & Financial Crime Conference brings together industry leading experts to offer insight on the new skills, tools and strategies that will help compliance professionals successfully navigate this era of rapid change. The conference, centered on the theme “Mastering the New Era of European Compliance” will take place at the RAI Amsterdam, Netherlands from May 31 – June 1, 2018. The conference includes a keynote presentation by Alexandra Jour-Schroeder, director for criminal justice at the European Commission, on 5AMLD and its practical implications for compliance professionals.

“The role of the AML professional is quickly evolving from one of sub-area specialists to those with a broader knowledge base and diverse skills,” said Rick McDonell, executive director of ACAMS and former executive secretary for the Financial Action Task Force. “Accelerating the evolution of AML compliance practices and professionals will require greater dialogue between the private sector, enforcement bodies and regulators – something ACAMS is well-positioned to facilitate.”

The Europe conference provides in-depth training, regulatory updates and critical solutions to regional AML compliance challenges. It is the largest dedicated AML conference in the region, and represents a unique opportunity for the AML/CTF/anti-financial crime community to meet. Plenary sessions will address topics as 4AMLD & GDPR, Sanctions, the Terrorism Threat in Europe and Cybercrime. Specialist ‘AML Knowledge’ and ‘AML Innovations’ tracks will spotlight the latest breakthroughs in sector technology.

“The pace of change in European anti-financial crime policy and practice continues unabated, and topics like artificial intelligence, cybercrime, AML data analytics and how to combat terror financing and human trafficking have never been more important,” said Angela Salter, head of Europe at ACAMS. “This conference brings together current and future leaders of our industry to learn from one another and to connect with their peers across both private and public sectors. We’re proud to be the catalyst for this sharing of cutting-edge best practice and anti-financial crime professional development.”

Led by industry leaders in banking, government and law enforcement, the Europe Conference’s panels and workshops tackle critical AML issues head-on, with thought-provoking sessions, such as:

  • Cybercrime: Can it Ever be Prevented?
    • Analyze recent cybercrime cases to highlight the current cyber threat landscape
