A half-day course

Terrorist & Proliferation Financing have become a key regulatory imperative, particularly as conflict has grown throughout the world in recent years. As the funding of terrorist organisations has become more sophisticated, the need for vigilance has increased, not just in financial institutions but through a range of businesses that have found themselves inadvertently exposed to fines and sanctions.

In addition, proliferation financing has become a priority for governments who are clamping down hard on any suggestion that trade and exports might be used for the purchase and development of weapons of mass destruction.

Our market-leading course covers all the up-to-date challenges facing businesses potentially exposed to facilitate the funding of terrorism and the creation of weapons of mass destruction. This course is packed with real-life case studies and examples to show delegates how terrorist & proliferation financing can be identified, equipping you with the skills needed to successfully meet the regulatory requirements and industry best practices.

 Taught by the leading trainer in this area you will learn:

  • The scale of the problem and how potential funding of terrorism/WMD is present in every part of the value chain, no matter what the business
