"Anti-financial crime professionals need to be more than old-fashioned gumshoes in the 21st century given the complexity of the criminal schemes they must detect and when possible thwart," said Kieran Beer, editor-in-chief of ACAMS moneylaundering.com. "That's why there is a new rigor in both the general sessions and breakouts at this conference around financial technology and cybersecurity as well as the same quality of content we've always brought to the program with regard to transaction analysis, sanctions and countering the finance of terrorism."
