Assess Risks for Anti-Money Laundering by Understanding the Crisis - the Future of Anti-Money Laundering

By: SBWire

Reykjavik, Iceland -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/12/2022 -- In recent years, it has become clear that there will always be those who seek to exploit crisis situations, whether that's a global pandemic or a terrorist incident. When it comes to compliance risk, it is increasingly vital to factor in the way that emergency situations present fraudsters with a prime opportunity to make money, especially as ongoing climate change is likely to fuel many more emergencies going forward. This is not the first time that there has been evidence of criminal activity increasing during a disaster - after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricanes Irma and Harvey in 2017, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network highlighted the fraud risk inherent in these crises in areas such as cybercrime, benefits, and charities. During the pandemic, there has been a wave of exploitative activity, from insurance fraud to counterfeit vaccine cards, which indicates just how much potential every crisis has for the fraudster. As a result, compliance risk going forward must necessarily focus on understanding the crisis at hand.

In practical terms, that means compliance risk assessment needs to include the full range of potential crises, from those that will inevitably arise due to climate change (e.g. droughts, wildfires, and floods) to instability and violent extremism. Ransomware attacks and other forms of cybercrime also remain a big risk and a conduit for criminal activity. Both have been increased by the proliferation of emerging payment systems and the use of crypto assets in recent years.
