Federated Learning: Bringing Together Industry’s AML Intelligence

Time: July 7, 2020,

11:00am ET

Watch Now

The global pandemic has affected all of us and has given us a reality check to adapt to any change and continue business as usual. As countries across the world experiment and reshape how we work and live, still AML practitioners and financial institutions are required to maintain a safe and sound Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) program. Integrating AI-powered AML systems to enhance risk coverage and improve operational efficiency is just the beginning. The future lies in sharing AML wisdom, giving equal footing to all banks, and stopping the bad actors together.

Listen and learn from our panel of experts in a virtual roundtable as they discuss:

  • The need to move away from rules-driven, siloed AML programs designed for individual countries, product lines and customer segments.
  • The need to have a 360-degree view of a customer and activity footprint
  • The need to collaborate and share money laundering patterns in a privacy-preserved manner

The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the digital transformation plans across financial institutions to provide customers with a frictionless experience. This calls for adjustments in the current AML/CFT program framework to account for new patterns of criminal behavior and better address emerging money laundering risks.

  • Achieve scale and quicker time-to-value for AML compliance systems
