November 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Wednesday 15th November 2023 from 12:00 PM – 01:00 PM, via Webinar.
A to Z: Understand the Dynamic World of Crypto Assets
In recent years, the crypto asset landscape has expanded rapidly but the comprehensive know-how to navigate through this exciting new world is often difficult to obtain. As leading financial crime compliance experts, Lysis Group has significant expertise in the crypto asset space and can provide substantial insight into this very dynamic market.
Based on our vast, yet unique understanding of the crypto asset environment, we have compiled three training modules that focus on every possible dimension of the crypto asset domain. Our hand-picked presenters are world-class and top-leading experts on the topic of crypto assets.
MODULE 1: Introduction to Crypto Assets and the related money laundering risks
This module provides a basic, yet detailed overview of what is meant by ‘cryptocurrency’ and ‘digital assets’ as well as the regulatory context in the digital and virtual space. This module also unpacks the various anti-money laundering challenges linked to compliance and regulators in relation to the mainstream acceptance of digital assets. Equally important, this module reviews some of the key crypto financial crime ‘red flags’, or typologies that your business is very likely to come across.
This series of webinars will be delivered by Matthew Gardiner and Wendy Murray of Lysis Group.
