Course Title
AML & Fraud for Crypto

Course Description
This session is a deep-dive into anti-money laundering (AML) and fraud. It will include topics like: you may not be a fan of KYC (but do you like it more than the colour orange?) and how your investors could land you in hot water. We will also talk about fraud prevention and how to use your time and resources effectively.

You will leave this session with an understanding of elements of AML, like KYC and monitoring, as well as common fraud prevention practices. While these concepts sometimes overlap, in other cases they have less in common than one might expect. Both startups and established companies need to consider how to balance their resources and streamline processes where possible, without taking on too much risk.
