Reference Guide to Financial Crimes

The Reference Guide to Financial Crimes is a first-of-its-kind, at-the-ready resource, covering the full spectrum of financial crimes -- explaining what they are, how they work, and how they impact a financial institution. The fully updated Second Edition has been expanded to address the emerging risk of cyber-enabled crimes threatening U.S. banks in addition to fraud, money laundering, and terrorist financing methodologies.

This guide takes a holistic approach to financial crimes, explaining how various types of fraud and money laundering methods are used by criminals to victimize banks and their customers. It provides specific details on current fraud tactics, money laundering and terrorist financing schemes, and offers useful examples and case studies highlighting real life situations. It is not intended to cover the specific FFIEC regulatory requirements for banks.

  • Governance and Oversight
  • Financial Crimes Methodologies
  • Program Strategy
