New - Anti-Money Laundering Course

New IALS Short Course

This specialist course, new to the IALS, brings delegates up to speed with the evolving framework within which regulators, governments, law enforcement and industry work together to combat financial crime, but at the same time emphasises on the need for Senior GRC professionals to discharge their statutory duties within the limits of proportionality so that financial institutions and consumers are not disadvantaged by unintended consequences of extreme anti-financial crime measures.
