Why Should you Attend
A main significance when filing SARs is to identify potential violations of law to the appropriate federal, state and local law enforcement agencies for criminal investigation. Sufficient and relevant information within the SAR provided by financial institutions can potentially lead law enforcement to seize funds, start an investigation or catch suspects connected to nefarious activity. This webinar will offer practical tips to ensure your SAR production process addresses law enforcement needs. It will also offer best practices for streamlining the investigation process from alert triage to SAR filing and working with law enforcement on SAR cases.
