The BSA/AML Risk Assessment is one of the main tools used to evaluate the strength of an institution’s compliance controls. It assesses the level of regulatory and money laundering risks by identifying the business segments, business units and support functions to be assessed, and determines the scope of applicable AML/BSA laws and regulations for each segment. The Assessment then scores the inherent risk factors and strength of controls to ultimately generate an inherent/residual risk heat map.
As part of AML compliance testing – one of the main pillars of an effective AML program – it is essential to also review and test an institution’s BSA/AML Risk Assessment.
