How to Comply in a World More and More Regulated Post Covid-19 Crisis?

Point of view of our experts in the context of Exchange Houses in UAE

July 22 • 12 p.m. Dubai • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

There isn’t a day we heard AML must be supplemented with artificial intelligence. However today in 2020 and after the COVID-19 pandemic impacting all our activates, we would like to challenge what was accomplished over the last few years and suggest a new way to look at compliance.

Every industry is currently re-thinking what we call the “new normal” or the “day after”. Compliance is not escaping this!

Is the adoption of AI and Machine learning the only way to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of transaction monitoring and sanction screening systems?
Haven’t we made too quick conclusions and willing to adopt modern algorithms in every scenario designed?
Haven’t we mis-considered the basics of any compliance programs?  Do we understand the basics of AML?
How can we today reply to all those questions and make sure we remain compliant?

In this webinar, we will address these questions in the context of the new regulation of the central bank of the UAE for exchange houses and discuss this with our experts from SAS Middle East and SAS global 

Why attend?

  • Regulations are changing and you will get the update on why you need to comply
  • The “day after” covid-19 has arrived, how to prepare our back to work
  • AML – Compliance is more than ever a hot topic in Middle East
