Cryptocurrency—AML/KYC, Compliance and Forensic Investigations
Pamela Clegg, CAMS, CipherTrace, Los Gatos, CA
Size does not matter when it comes to compliance. Regulatory expectations are the same, regardless of the size and complexity of any financial institution that wishes to provide banking services to virtual currency exchanges. Creating banking procedures for an emerging trend is a difficult task, and with regulators nearly a decade behind the technology, it complicates the matter even further. The best place to start is to build procedures based on existing requirements and best practices used for accounts with a higher risk of money laundering. This session will explain the dos and don’ts that banks should understand in this current environment. Pamela Clegg works with governments, law enforcement officials, regulators, law firms and financial institutions around the world to conduct blockchain forensic investigations.
