Description:  Morgan Clemons and Judy Newberry, attorneys in the Regulatory Compliance practice group at Aldridge Pite LLP, will discuss money laundering risks among the predominant generations living, working, engaging in e-commerce, and handling money. What defining characteristics of generations make certain populations more or less susceptible to money laundering fraud schemes? How do technology, financial acumen, and financial circumstances influence different populations? Can generational data be used for compliance purposes? What are the modern money laundering offenses and who are the modern money laundering offenders and victims? How can compliance officers and AML professionals protect their institutions, recognize risks, and prevent financial crimes? These topics will be covered, and speakers will also include a discussion of Facebook cryptocurrency and any potential money laundering effects.
