The intensive one-day event will provide comprehensive training, in-depth information, and up-to-date best practices to minimize AML risks.
The keynote address will be delivered by Cyrus R. Vance, Jr., District Attorney at the Manhattan District Attorney's Office. Vance is a leader in criminal justice reform and proposed a compelling vision for moving the District Attorney's Office forward, with a focus on crime prevention. Moderating the conference is Richard A. Small, CAMS, Vice President, Enterprise-Wide Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Corruption and Sanctions Risk Management at American Express.
Also speaking at the event will be Ted Weissberg, CEO of ACAMS who says of the conference: "The knowledge our delegates will get from this conference will help improve their AML risk management practices and protect their organizations from financial and reputational harm, especially in light of recent enforcement actions."

This one-day intensive conference provides an opportunity to dive into these issues and get up-to-speed with minimal time and travel."
