Chye Kit, the CEO and managing director of Cynopsis and traceto.io, is honored to be invited as a speaker for AML/CTF Risk Assessment and panel for the discussion of AML/CTF trends.
From the ACRA/EP200 guidelines, you will know that risk assessment is an integral part in Know-Your-Customer (KYC) procedures. KYC screening for Politically Exposed Persons (PEP), Sanctions, Adverse News cannot be standalone.
How can businesses perform risk assessment? By leveraging close to 20 years of compliance experience, Chye Kit shed light on the process of risk assessment which starts with (1) identifying risk; (2) measuring risk; (3) analysing risk; (4) reviewing risk; (5) mitigating risk and the cycle repeats. Based on the likelihood and significance of the risk, CSPs and Practitioners should also consider these 4 common types of risk namely - country risk, customer risk, product/services risk and business activities risk to help them make business decisions.
When asked by the audience implications of cryptocurrencies startup for CSPs with respect to AML/KYC, Chye Kit recommended that CSPs should approach this sector with an open mind. Understanding the underlying blockchain technology and getting to know there startup founders better will go a long way in demonstrating KYC.
Mandatory Training & Test
As CSPs and Practitioners play a key role in helping to combat illicit corporate activities, it is important that they keep abreast of AML/CTF regulations which will only become more stringent.
One of the new legislation changes will be the mandatory training and proficiency test for CSPs in Singapore.
