AML in 2022: Compliance, Controversy, and Expectations

2021 ended with controversial events surrounding AML regulations, giving us a good reason to discuss the consequences and events to come. In this webinar industry veterans of compliance will be examining the new rules of the game.

The discussion will include:

– The new amendments to the Estonian AML Act which created so much buzz that the Estonian Ministry of Finance had to return to work during the holiday weekend. These include stricter licence demands and huge fines of up to €400,000. We’ll be covering what you need to do to stay compliant after the March 18th deadline.

– EiDAS, the EU Digital Finance Package, & National Electronic ID systems. Will we see open-access governmental ID systems working through smart wallets? How will this work together with EiDAS and similar instruments? We’ll go over the practical aspects.

– The European Banking Authority’s public consultation on its draft guidelines on the use of remote customer onboarding solutions. More and more signs are pointing to the European financial system moving onto new ID technologies. We’ll explore recent examples of this from Cyprus and Greece and try to figure out what’s next.

– The latest updates to the FATF’s guidance and more.

– Graham Barrow, Financial crimes expert and director of The Dark Money Files;
– Soroush Kafiabadi, Senior Vice President at Kroll, specialising in regulations with a focus on governance & oversight, retail conduct and financial crimes;
– Tony Petrov, Head of Legal at Sumsub.
