AML/Financial Crime/Financial Sanctions has never been as topical and important as it is right now. From real financial crimes (money laundering, terrorist financing, bribery & corruption, fraud) and organised crimes (cybercrime, drug trafficking, sex trafficking) occurring domestically and globally on a weekly basis, strict legal requirements including introduction of new EU AML Regulator as well as a new European AML Rule Book, regular enforcement action globally and finally of course the atrocities that we are seeing playing out every day in Ukraine resulting in major Russian Financial Sanctions - it is all having an incredibly challenging impact on how Financial Institutions manage these risks within their respective business both domestically here in Ireland and on a global basis.
