The NCBA is partnering with Arnold & Porter on this program. The link will be delivered to attendees 24 hours before the program begins. The webinar will begin promptly at 10:00 am on June 19.
Recent agency guidance, rulemakings, and enforcement actions demonstrate the financial regulatory agencies’ commitment to enforcing the Bank Secrecy Act and its implementing regulations (BSA), including their willingness to hold lead compliance professionals personally accountable. Suspicious Activity Reporting is a critical aspect of BSA compliance, and the adequacy of SAR narratives is increasingly becoming the subject of examination and enforcement criticism. This presentation details best practices for drafting the SAR narrative, including critical components, structure, and what to look for when identifying suspicious activity.
This webinar will be 50 minutes, followed by a 10 minute Q&A session.
