FTS offers COVID-19, AML and risk management webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the ability of risk management and compliance professionals to carry out their duties. It will also have implications for risk management and compliance systems, according to consulting firm FTS.

Paul Byles, director, FTS

To help address the issue, FTS is hosting a webinar on COVID-19, anti-money laundering and risk management, covering new FATF COVID-19 AML guidelines, cyber-security risks and updates from the Financial Reporting Authority.

Kim France, Sanctions Coordinator of the Cayman Financial Reporting Authority, will speak on the FRA key updates during COVID-19, while Paul Byles, director of FTS, will be presenting on the new FATF COVID-19 AML guidelines.

Wayne Green and Alexandra Green, directors at Deloitte, will be discussing specific cyber-security risks.

The main presentations will be followed by a panel discussion featuring all the speakers.

“This first webinar aims to help compliance professionals to refocus in the current environment which can be very distracting for effective risk management,” said Byles. “Cyber risks, and FATF COVID-19 policy and guidance are highly relevant at this time and those topics, along with important updates from the FRA, makes for a valuable agenda for much-needed compliance training.”

The webinar will take place at 9-11am, on Thursday, 4 June. Registration is $100. To register, visit www.ftscayman.com/events. Deadline for registration is 2 June.
