The Basel Institute on Governance is offering a four-day training course on the fundamentals of cryptocurrencies, financial crime and anti-money laundering (AML) compliance.
Delivered virtually over four 3-hour sessions, the course aims to help practitioners from a wide range of law enforcement, financial and business sectors prevent, detect and investigate the use of cryptocurrencies for illicit activities.
Policymakers, regulators and investigative journalists will also benefit from the comprehensive introduction to virtual assets and blockchain analysis, due diligence and risk management, including the implications of EU anti-money laundering directives (AMLDs) and ultimate beneficial ownership (UBO) requirements.
The workshop centres around a practical money laundering case scenario, in which participants will investigate the “cleaning” of stolen assets for integration into the financial system by tracing transactions through the blockchain.
The course draws on the popular Money Laundering using Cryptocurrency training programme of the Basel Institute’s International Centre of the Asset Recovery, which is offered exclusively to government agencies in partner countries.
