Course Description:

The need for the best possible and thorough management of the risks that financial transactions with clients / partners may hide, is increasingly imperative for the financial sector as well as for lawyers, accountants and other professionals who fall under the condition "Obligated entities".

The purpose of the seminar is to cover the recent changes in the provisions of the legislation on the Prevention and Combating of Money Laundering and the forthcoming changes with the implementation of the 5th and 6th European Directives.

The main economic sanctions regimes in Europe, the United Nations and the United States will also be examined. In addition, information security will be discussed and reported.

In addition, the seminar will cover the risks posed by the use of Cryptocurrencies as identified by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and how the EU tries to manage these risks through its instructions.

There will also be information on the ways in which criminals act and how they exploit weaknesses in the financial sector in order to channel money from illegal activities. To this end, real examples of money laundering cases will be presented, which were investigated both locally and internationally and at EU level.
