September 24, 2015

NEW YORK – September 24, 2015 –NICE Actimize, a NICE Systems (NASDAQ:NICE) business and the largest and broadest provider of a single financial crime, risk and compliance software platform for the financial services industry, is launching a monthly Anti-Money Laundering Webinar Series starting this October. The first three webinars in the series will focus on vital themes within the AML marketplace: the importance of establishing the right culture to support compliance and regulatory needs; the ongoing fight against bribery and corruption; and finally, the need for consistency in managing risk policies, processes, and procedures.  

The “Culture of…” Webinar Series will include industry subject matter experts, analysts, and compliance experts from the anti-money laundering and regulatory community as speakers. The series will kick off on October 21 with its first webinar titled, “Ensuring a Culture of Compliance” and will feature Andy Schmidt, a Principal Executive Advisor at CEB TowerGroup and a global expert on anti-money laundering prevention, as well as convergence, payment hubs, mobile payments, and regulatory standards. Paired with Schmidt will be Micah Willbrand, Director of AML Product Marketing, NICE Actimize, a subject matter expert with more than 15 years’ experience working with organizations to identify effective practices to mitigate money laundering and other financial crime risks.

According to Ed Sander, Global VP and General Manager, Anti-Money Laundering, NICE Actimize, “Building the right culture consists of three key stages: ensuring a culture of compliance by making it part of an institution’s everyday activities; eliminating those aspects of a culture that support corruption; and last, determining how to create a more consistent culture through automation and technology. Our webinar series is structured around these three critical phases.”  

The first installments of the “Culture of….” Webinar Series will roll out monthly as follows: 
  • Ensuring a Culture of Compliance, Oct. 21: The launch webinar will address global trends on creating and encouraging a culture of compliance – the people and processes aligned to establishing compliance as a day-to-day focus of your institution. 
  • Eliminating the Culture of Corruption, Nov. 18: Touching on some of the most well-known anti-bribery and corruption issues today, this webinar will address the concerns of financial institutions and ways to spot and eradicate corruption. Speaker to be announced. 
  • Enabling a Culture of Consistency, Dec. 10: This webinar will address organizational governance and how the latest Customer Due Diligence technology enables and promotes consistent risk policies. The discussion will also address those risks posed by an incomplete view of the customer.
