THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountants Act, Laws of Kenya)
Anti-Money Laundering: Key Policy Considerations, Audit & Risk Assessments
Date: 7th July 2022
Time: 4:00pm – 6:00 pm
Venue: Online

Overview

Money laundering is the illegal process of making large amounts of money generated by criminal activity, such as drug trafficking or terrorist funding, appear to have come from a legitimate source. The money from the criminal activity is considered dirty, and the process “launders” it to make it look clean.

Most financial companies today have anti-money-laundering (AML) policies in place to detect, prevent and monitor potentially fraudulent activities. Anti-money laundering policies typically require most entities that complete financial transactions to keep thorough records of their clients’ accounts and activities. If they come across any information that appears to be suspicious, they are required to report it to the government for further investigation.
The use of ethical hacking, best described as “penetrating an organizations systems and networks using the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a legitimate and ethical manner” to test for any vulnerabilities, is a new tool for detecting money laundering. Regulation 21 of the Money Laundering Regulations 2017 necessitates establishing an independent audit function when suitable for the size and type of the organization. As a result, the firm’s first barrier is determining if they are of sufficient size and character to require one.

The Institute has organized a two hour webinar  to focus on the following topical areas;

  • Development of Anti-Money Laundering Policy
  • Indications of Possible Money Laundering
  • Creating an effective AMR audit review program
  • How to conduct Anti-money Laundering risk assessment
  • Professional Accountants’ roles, obligations, and risk assessment regarding AML
