BSA/AML & Crypto/Virtual Currency

Be sure to JOIN US for our webinar, “BSA/AML: Crypto/Virtual Currency.”

Crypto/Virtual currency is growing by leaps and bounds and is becoming more prevalent and mainstream.  If you haven’t seen it pop up yet at your institution, it’s probably only a matter of time.  If you haven’t conducted a risk assessment from a BSA/AML perspective, it’s something you are going to want to do.  Management needs to be aware of the potential risks as well as how to mitigate those risks as you move forward.

Kevin discussed crypto/virtual currencies at our January Monthly Connection.  Here is a short clip from that discussion.

Kevin Edwards

Kevin brings years of experience and a unique perspective on regulatory matters to our clients. A self-proclaimed geek and accredited CRCM, Kevin is also a recovering attorney with experience as in-house counsel for a large regional bank and one of the leading national title insurance providers. For reasons unknown, Kevin decided to leave the safety and serenity of his desk job to seek fortune and glory as a wandering adventurer. Like a bank compliance version of Kwai Chang Caine, The Man with No Name or Don Quixote, he now travels the land seeking to help those in need and righting compliance wrongs, wherever he may find them. Kevin lives in Sioux Falls with his two children, who are surprisingly normal after having endured their father’s vivid imagination for their entire lives. He won’t admit to having any hobbies, because apparently “Regulations never sleep.” (While he does say this in his Batman voice, we’re pretty sure he’s joking.) From the looks of his Facebook page, he likes the outdoors and spending time with his large extended family (who seem like relatively normal people).
