The Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) is one of the main tools the Federal Government uses to combat financial crimes and terrorist activity. The BSA requires banks to assist in preventing crime by enacting sound policies regarding reporting, recordkeeping, and monitoring of potentially criminal activity. The BSA requires the Board of Directors to appoint a Bank Secrecy Officer. It is important that the Bank Secrecy Officer be well versed in the Bank Secrecy Act in order to implement a compliance BSA/AML program. This course will provide Bank Secrecy Officer and other BSA/compliance personnel with the training they need to effectively create and manage their banks program.
