Curbing money laundering and terrorist financing is critical to the integrity of financial markets and national security. Yet, the legal and regulatory framework for addressing money laundering and terrorist financing is rooted in a law written over 40 years ago. Is there a more effective way to detect and prevent these criminal activities? Can technology and big data be used to identify and stop illegal transactions? Is there a need for greater cooperation and information sharing between financial firms and law enforcement? Join us to explore these and other questions with policymakers and experts on September 12.
Rep. Ed Royce, Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and member of the House Financial Services Committee, will offer keynote remarks, and Greg Baer, President and CEO of The Clearing House, will offer remarks about a report released earlier this year on ways to reform the AML/CFT process. A panel discussion by experts from law enforcement and industry will follow.
