Ongoing money laundering training is a real drag for solicitors. Regulation 21 of the Money Laundering Regulations 2007 requires that law firms “regularly provide training” on the topic.

Most firms comply with refresher training every 12-18 months that merely rehash the legislation and CDD procedures. This has led many solicitors to have a jaded attitude towards the training and they don’t take it seriously… until now.

Today VinciWorks released AML 360 — the perfect refresher course for users that claim to know it all. Instead of rehashing the legislation and CDD procedures, the course goes beyond the basics by engaging learners with the hot topics of the day.

The interactivity and rapid pace of the course creates an immersive experience in which users take an active role in the material rather than passively consuming information.

AML 360° is geared towards lawyers or support staff who have already undertaken money laundering training and understand the subject matter.

It delves into more detail and explores emerging areas such as bitcoin and the Fourth Money Laundering Directive.

The course covers eight subjects in less than 20 minutes with the following fast-paced modules:

  • Bitcoin: The dangers of virtual currency
  • How do criminals abuse law firms?
  • EU Fourth Directive: What’s new?
  • Red flags of money laundering
  • CDD: When to do it and what to do
  • Hollywood explains money laundering
  • Is your practice area at risk?
  • Source of wealth and funds

How to protect your firm from ransomware

Adam Curtis Hoowla

One news item has dominated the headlines over the last week – cyber-attacks and, in particular, the WannaCry ransomware. It is a well-known and well-documented fact that the legal industry, and conveyancing in particular, can be a vulnerable and high value target. This ranges from property hijacking – where fraudsters pose as legitimate owners of a property and sell it on without the real owner’s knowledge – to ‘Friday afternoon fraud’, with criminals contacting a busy law firm to ‘update’ their bank details to redirect funds.
