Training Overview

Are your SARs useful? Learn how to provide better information and ensure compliance.

Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) have taken on additional weight due to recent anti-money laundering regulations. They must deliver a “high degree of usefulness” to law enforcement and the intelligence community. These filings are also a central focus of second-line testers, auditors, and regulators. 

You need to create clear and useful narratives while avoiding common pitfalls.
