WASHINGTON (8/4/15)--There will be a human face put on those victimized by illicit activity that can be aided unknowingly by financial institutions at the upcoming Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Conference, which will take place Nov. 15-18 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The conference will be held by CUNA and the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS).
Timea Nagy is a survivor of human trafficking, and founded Walk with Me, an organization that works with trafficking victims and law enforcement agencies.
Between 2009 and 2015, Walk with Me helped more than 300 victims and more than 500 human trafficking-related investigations throughout Canada. Nagy has provided training to numerous agencies in Canada, the United States and Europe, as well as multiple American financial institutions.
Nagy’s speech will be followed by a Verafin presentation on what to look for when it comes to human trafficking flags, including funnel accounts, payments for smuggling and trafficking victims.
In addition to Nagy, CUNA compliance staff, regulators, cybersecurity experts and law enforcement personnel will give presentations. Representatives from the National Credit Union Administration, World Council of Credit Unions, Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, Office of Foreign Assets Control and U.S. Treasury Financial Crimes Enforcement Network will also be presenting.
Registration is now open for the CUNA/NASCUS BSA Conference.
