Stephen will be joined by the following panelists:
Carol Van Cleef, Partner, Manatt Phelps & Phillips (Moderator)

Catherine "Alden" Pelker, Analyst, Money Laundering Intelligence Unit, FBI
Daniel Tannebaum, Director & Global Financial Services Sanctions Leader, PwC
Digital currencies like bitcoin have significantly added to AML compliance challenges for both industry and regulators. What are the key lessons from recent indictments and prosecutions, including how criminals are abusing digital currencies and the red flags for criminal activity? Hear from highly experienced professionals--including the prosecutor and key FBI analyst in several recent cases--on the roadmap to develop an effective AML program for the new payments landscape.
Given the current legal and regulatory climate, this discussion will be very timely. In the United States, federal agencies are getting tougher when it comes to cracking down on money laundering. Authorities are now using undercover sting operations to lure offshore facilitators to come to the U.S. under the pretense of conducting business in person to set up overseas shell companies to avoid taxes or launder funds. The Department of Justice has also recently filed charges against two men accused of setting up an illegal Bitcoin money-transfer business that helped hackers launder money collected from ransoms demanded from companies that were threatened with cyberattacks.
