US NATIONAL THREAT ASSESSMENTS – AML/CFT AND PROLIFERATION

On 28th January, ACFCS published an article with links to the National Strategy for Combatting Terrorist and Other Illicit Financing, National Money Laundering Risk Assessment 2018, National Terrorist Financing Risk Assessment 2018 and National Proliferation Financing Risk Assessment 2018.  Described as 4 recent reports the US government detailing the overarching strategies to counter an array of criminal threats, from narco-traffickers to rogue nation states, healthcare fraudsters to Nigerian princes and princesses, Indian “IRS” agents, to terror financiers and weapons and human traffickers.  The assessments also give a roadmap of issues investigators and regulators are prioritising, weaknesses that no doubt have strings to AML compliance and could take shape as new questions in compliance exams and upcoming regulations.
