About This Course:
The Bank Secrecy Act remains on the top of the list of critical regulations the Federal government is enforcing across the country and across all regulatory agencies.  In the past year alone - over $600 million in fines and penalties have been paid by financial institutions upon the completion of their BSA / AML exam as a result of non compliance.  Although not an easy task, every institution works hard toward passing their BSA exam.
