In this upcoming MasterClass hosted by iComply, BitAML’s Founder Joe Ciccolo and Coinstructive’s CEO Chris Groshong join iComply’s Head of Product Strategy Greg Pinn to discuss the importance of understanding and mitigating your company’s risk in crypto compliance and AML screening.
Compliance tends to be one of the larger knowledge gaps for modern business management; closing this gap is not only essential to the success of your business, it’s also the law. Our expert panel will discuss the areas of risk that your business could be subject to and the challenges associated with non-face-to-face transactions. Find out what can be done to mitigate these risks, and learn why regulators will no longer buy ignorance as an excuse for non-compliance.
