Anti-money laundering and data protection in practice
Effective compliance is more than just a tick box exercise, working best when it becomes part of an organisation’s DNA. Cultural change is a key requirement if anti-money laundering (AML) and data protection is to be built into how organisations do things and is not just a bolt on.
The risks associated with non-compliance are high - financially and reputationally.
Anti-Money Laundering and Data Protection in Practice is a training seminar provided by the ICAS Practice Support team. It brings to life AML and data protection within the practice environment in a practical and day to day basis, making it part of the firm’s DNA, thereby reducing the risks to the firm of non-compliance.
Who will benefit from attending training courses
AML and data protection is of such importance and relevance to practices that all staff and partners would benefit from attending training in these areas. Providing and requiring attendance at the course is one way of demonstrating reasonable measures have been put in place by the firm to comply with the 2017 Regulations and to prevent data breaches.

This course ensures that employees, from receptionists to partners, have the necessary skills to spot suspicious circumstances and understand what they need to do if and when they encounter them, with some thought provoking, real-life case studies to reinforce the learning outcomes.
