New Risk Watch video discusses hallmarks of a sound compliance culture

FREDERICK, MD (September 4, 2014) — A new online video in the Risk Watch series discusses one of the root causes of problems in a financial institution’s Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering programs: a weak culture of compliance. Attention to an institution’s compliance culture is likely to go up in light of FinCEN’s recent advisory on the matter. In this video, AffirmX’s Senior Analyst Coppelia Padgett explains what a compliance culture is and what to do if it is lacking at your financial institution. The video can be found here.
