The fight against terrorism requires close cooperation between government agencies and private sector entities.

In this practical webinar hosted by the ACSS Benelux Chapter, we will cover the preventive public approach against terrorist financing and how the private sector deals with this.

After a short introduction on the background of CFT sanctions, we will discuss the financial profile of (Dutch) terrorists and the efforts that have been made to develop effective typologies on terrorist financing,

You will learn how the public sector uses sanction regimes to fight terrorist financing, how CFT sanctions are being enforced through criminal proceedings and what the potential side-effects of CFT sanctions might be.

From a private sector perspective, you will learn about sanctions screening in context of Counter Terrorist Financing (CTF) e.g. dealing with EU list and national lists such as BEFOJ, NNTS.

We will cover potential issues you may encounter with regards to screening and once you identified a customer the difficulties with regards to the freezing of funds and notification to local competent authority.

We will also cover how to answer RFIs (Requests for Information) from other financial institutions, e.g. confirming data such as DOB and issues with privacy that may arise from this.

Finally you will learn about preventative steps you can take, such as KYC & KYT to detect CTF upfront (and can AI help)?

What will you learn?

  • The preventive public approach against terrorist financing;
  • The preventive private approach – possibilities and shortcomings
  • Possible solutions and/or improvements when screening against terrorist lists
  • Can AI help in this effort?
