Trade Based Money Laundering

Course Description

Trade Based Money Laundering is the latest challenge in international money laundering law enforcement.

As the financial community becomes more experienced in recognising and preventing traditional money laundering methods, such as large cash deposits, criminals have explored other means to scrub their ill-gotten gains. International trade and trade instruments are often used as vehicles to launder criminal money.

Businesses involved in international trade need to be vigilant to ensure their trades are not compromised by criminal elements infiltrating their organisations.

Banks need to be aware of the risks to their reputation should their services be found to have facilitated the process of money-laundering.

The sheer volume and international nature of trade can create a cloak of complexity and lack of transparency that financial criminals seek to exploit. This course has been designed by subject matter experts to provide an overview of trade-based money laundering (TMBL) risks. It introduces the core principles and features of TBML and outlines the various methods and techniques used by criminals. It gives a clear explanation of various TBML typologies and supplies practical insights into how to identify money laundering red flags.

Who should do this training?

This course is suitable for

  • banking professionals, particularly client-facing employees,
  • as well as risk management analysts and AML compliance officers across banks and businesses that trade internationally.

Course Description

Would you feel confident speaking up if you encountered misconduct in your organisation?

Whistleblowing is the act of exposing misconduct or an improper state of affairs within an organisation. Research shows that businesses that receive and investigate whistleblower reports show a significant and lasting decline in misconduct incidents. But often employees are reluctant to report misconduct they notice at work because of fear that the organisation or another employee will take adverse action against them for speaking up.

Organisations must build trust with their employees (and other third parties) to encourage them to make reports. This means creating a workplace culture of whistleblowing, and having clear and dedicated systems in place to ensure whistleblowers are protected and aware of their rights.

This courses uses real-life examples and scenarios to guide individuals on what to do when a reportable situation arises, what to expect from the reporting process and what protection they can expect. Advanced modules cover how to institute a whistleblowing culture from the top down.

Who should do this training?

This course contains a general module suitable for employees at all levels and in all facets of your organisation, as well as module for managers on whistleblowing obligations at an organisational level.

Course Outline

  • Module 1: Introduction to whistleblowing
  • Module 2: Whistleblower protections (for managers and other senior employees)

Fraud Awareness

Course Description

It may surprise you to learn that fraud in Australia is higher than the international average, arising in more than half of organisations. This costs the economy billions of dollars and organisations an average of $3 million. In addition, fraud can cause a loss of reputation and eventual loss of business profitability.

The most powerful anti-fraud weapon are educated and aware employees. The Salt Fraud course educates employees as to the types of behaviour that constitutes fraud, and provides a comprehensive list of fraud indicators to foster internal monitoring.

Building a culture of awareness and responsibility can reduce the risk of fraud and increase detection rates, thereby reducing the monetary and other costs of fraud.

Who is this training for?

The Salt Fraud course is tailored such that it is relevant to a diverse range of employees. This is because any person within an organisation is capable of committing fraud. This course is hence a valuable and appropriate tool for staff at all levels within an organisation, ranging from front-line staff to management.

  • Module 3: Common fraud schemes
  • Module 4: Fraud red flags

Fraud Awareness for Financial Services

Course Description

This training is about identifying and preventing customer and workplace fraud

Annual fraud losses in the Australian financial sector are currently running at well over half a billion dollars. In the Financial Services Industry we typically think of fraud involving customer accounts and loans. But just like any other industry, financial services businesses are also subject to other sorts of fraud, many of which are also covered in this training.

Defending a business against fraud requires staff to be educated on fraud typologies and modalities.

Experience shows that internal fraud (payroll fraud and expense account fraud, accounts payable fraud etc) is more likely to be identified by staff member tip-offs than by auditors or internal procedures.

To defend against external fraud (customer fraud, supplier fraud, loan fraud, ID takeover fraud etc) financial services businesses have sophisticated fraud detection software in operation, but this still needs to be backed up by staff who can spot anomalies before the fraud takes place and who play a role in educating customers on their role in combating fraud.

This course teaches staff

  • How to identify and respond to fraud in the workplace
  • How to recognize the types of fraud committed by customers and third parties and their role in combating this fraud
  • What the consequences of fraud are for both the fraudster and the organisation
  • How to prevent fraud from occurring

Fraud detection software needs to be backed up by staff who can spot anomalies before the fraud takes place and who play a role in educating customers on their role in combating fraud.

Who should do this training?

This training is especially suitable for financial services customer-facing staff and staff who work in other fraud risk areas, such as: accounting, operations, sales, executive/upper management, and purchasing
