Introduction to effective Financial Crime Risk Management


Adopting an effective financial crime risk management strategy has become increasingly significant to protect organisations from existing risks and at the same time to comply with the ever-changing regulatory landscape in Mauritius and beyond.

This course has been designed to provide the fundamentals of effective financial risk management and to cover the critical risk and control issues that regulators deem important for an effective and integrated financial crime compliance environment. 


Risk-based approach and control framework


To ensure the implementation of adequate and effective internal controls that will help mitigating financial crime risks, it is mandatory for organisations to ensure the implementation of the risk-based approach methodology.

In this session, you will learn how to use such an approach to redefine and refocus your internal control framework. We shall cover in detail the emergence of risk assessment and management, its link with corporate governance, and how to establish relevant controls to financial crime risk management processes.
