Training Overview

Explore the new FinCEN notice about COVID-19 scams. Learn how to update your policies and procedures.

On December 28, The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network of the U.S. Department of the Treasury (FinCEN) published a notice asking financial institutions to “stay alert to COVID-19 vaccine-related scams and cyberattacks.” They have seen a dramatic increase in these crimes, including ransomware targeting vaccine research and delivery operations.

You need to explore the details of these malevolent actions and update your policies and procedures to combat them. Beyond even the initial fraud they represent, these crimes involve money laundering, corruption, human trafficking, sanctions evasion, and terrorist finance. By understanding the risk indicators, you can leverage analytics and gap analysis to detect potentially high-risk customers/members, products, and transactions.
