The need for banks and other financial institutions to design their Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance program is paramount to mitigate financing risks and, most importantly, ensure conformity with the heightening BSA/AML regulations. Adopting a risk-based approach that focuses on detection and mitigation measures from potential illicit financial transactions is at the core to avoid hefty fines and legal liabilities.
