7:00 am - 9:00 am The Impact of Blockchain Technology on Fighting Money Laundering

Blockchain is a record of digital information exchanges, operating using a distributed ledger system. This works as a hyper-secure ledger of digital transactions, as the consensus of all systems hosting the blockchain is needed for a transaction to be recorded, and once a transaction is entered into the blockchain it cannot be erased or altered. Whilst blockchain has been most commonly associated with its use in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum, it has other uses and potential applications within the AML/CTF landscape. This Workshop will improve your knowledge of Blockchain and its specific uses for fighting Money Laundering.

Workshop Will Cover:

  • Integrating Blockchain into your AML processes
  • Leveraging emerging technology to maintain cutting edge business practices
  • Keeping informed about technological developments
