Course Description:

The number of cyber-attacks is growing up steadily over the last years, evolving and becoming more sophisticated. For this reason, cybersecurity becomes the major area of attention of professionals from financial services organizations, financial institutions, governmental organizations, including owners of SMEs. Until now, most of the SMEs did not incorporate any cybersecurity policies into their operations, exposing themselves to cyber-crime risks. The AML Officers and professionals constantly update their knowledge on new laws and regulations.

However, they often pay little attention to the importance of developing cyber resilience to mitigate AML risks within the organization. This year's pandemic lockdown and the fact that some employees are currently performing their work remotely reveal the weakness in many organizations' cyber resilience and the necessity to gain at least basic knowledge and skills in cybersecurity. Understanding existing cyber-crimes and facing cyber risks will help AML Officers, financial services professionals, representatives of governmental departments, and SMEs' owners develop sound cybersecurity policies and mitigate cyber risks.
