NEW YORK, September 9, 2021 – FRONTEO (TSE: 2158) is hosting a free webinar “U.S. Anti-Money Laundering Developments Affecting Cross-Border Investigations & Technology” in collaboration with Sidley Austin LLP on September 9th.
In recent years, the crackdown on money laundering has become stricter worldwide from the perspective of preventing international crimes including terrorism. In January 2021, the Anti-Money Laundering Act of 2020 was enacted in the United States as part of the National Defense Authorization Act. The EU is in the process of developing legislation to establish an Anti-Money-Laundering Agency with direct supervisory authority over financial companies. In Japan, the Financial Services Agency revised the "Guidelines for Money Laundering and Countermeasures against Terrorist Financing" in February of this year, requiring financial institutions to establish a response system by 2024. Keeping up to date with money laundering regulations is essential for cross-border trading companies and financial institutions.
In this webinar, Attorney Timothy J. Treanor, Global Co-Leader of Sidley Austin LLP's White-Collar Criminal Defense and Investigation Practices Group, will provide a timely and informative presentation on the updates to AML law and its impacts on cross-border investigations, discussing technology’s role in foreign AML investigations.
