AML Partnership Strategies among the Three Lines of Defense

Aired: Tuesday, March 6, 2018

1.25 CAFP, 1.25 CRCM, 1.25 CERP

In the context of AML, most of us who are BSA officers or part of an AML unit focus on our responsibilities as the second line of defense; while those responsibilities are certainly important, partnerships should exist with the first and third lines.

Panelists explore successful partnership strategies among the three lines of defense, and particularly address how and to what degree the second line should support others.

This recording focuses on:

  • Ensuring the first line has the necessary and relevant resources and training
  • Establishing a communication framework between the first and second lines
  • Establishing a reporting structure between the second and third lines
  • Guaranteeing that the third line's scope of activities is appropriate without being driven by the second line
  • Responding to the third line's inquiries and recommendations (particularly if they are wrong!)
