Cryptoasset usage is coming under increasing scrutiny by financial regulatory agencies. The latest Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations call for Suspicious Activity Reporting (SAR), but no guidance has been provided as to what constitutes suspicious activity in the space. This session will give scholars a closer look at Project Participate which brings together exchanges, analytical providers and regulators to develop indicators to inform transaction monitoring solutions, investigative best practices, and training. Indicators developed to date by Project Participate will be shared in this session.

Scholars will learn about the latest comprehensive indicators that have been developed along with a best practice model of investigation, the 360 Model, as published by the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS).

This course is appropriate for professionals, particularly lawyers and accountants, who serve clients in the industry.

Prerequisite(s): none.
