Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Counter Terrorist Financing (CTF) are important areas of Financial Crime, but it is important not to neglect other areas, such a Sanctions, Bribery, Corruption and Fraud. This module examines these other types of Financial Crime and leads participants through Fraud and Bribery & Corruption risk assessments. Sanctions are not ignored, as these have been shown to attract severe enforcement action from regulators in many countries of the world, most notably the United States.

This module can be taken as a standalone course or as part of the whole Diploma in Compliance, AML & Financial Crime. The Diploma consists of four modules totaling twelve days of interactive workshop learning, interspersed by examinations and assignments.
