2020 BSA School

2020 BSA School

Bank Secrecy Act School
August 6, 2020

Registration is $375 for CBAO members and $565 for non-members.

Our BSA school will get behind the minds of the criminals using the financial system to launder money, commit fraud, evade taxes, fund terrorism and finance unspeakable crimes. 


We will be joined by experts in the cryptocurrency and money service business industry to discuss risks, opportunities and due diligence. These are two areas that present confusion and ambivalence for our BSA Officers - our experts will help you better understand the risks of cryptocurrency and MSBs and how you should position your BSA program to mitigate those risks. 

BSA Topics Include:  

  • BSA Updates and Highlights
  • SAR and CTR Trends and Issues
  • Online Account Opening Protocol
  • CDD and EDD: Knowing and Rating Your Customers
  • BSA Lending Impact
  • Human Trafficking in Community Banks
  • Cannabis Banking Update
  • CBD IS Cannabis
  • Leveraging Artificial Intelligence
