Compounding FinCrime Concerns: Pros and Cons of Combining BSA and Fraud Departments

Over two thirds of survey respondents in Abrigo’s 2021 FinCrime Industry Survey said that their BSA department also covers fraud. The pandemic prompted a lot of consolidation in compliance areas, particularly at smaller institutions, and many different financial crime concerns are becoming more and more interrelated. How can you approach BSA/AML with a fraud mindset? What are the advantages and disadvantages of combining BSA and Fraud departments? Join this webinar for resources and considerations as you develop a unified plan for combating financial crime across BSA/AML and fraud initiatives within your institution. 

Join for a discussion on:

  • Fraud resources – what are the latest trends? 
  • Key approaches to identifying and preventing fraud, including workflow and configuration suggestions 
  • To Crossover or Not To Crossover – BSA and Fraud Lines in FinCrime fighting

This live session is eligible for 1 credit CAMS & CFCS and 1.25 credits CAFP & CRCM.
