“Following the money” is a proven strategy for government agencies pursuing violent extremist groups. Meanwhile, private sector institutions are desperate to catch up with the newest techniques for detecting and tracing the transactions of these groups and not falling foul of the toughest and most strictly enforced sanctions in U.S. history.

In response to the ever increasing demand from industry professionals for more knowledge and training regarding emerging threat finance risks and vulnerabilities, the Monterey Threat Financing Forum provides private sector compliance professionals, federal and state regulators, law enforcement, multilateral agencies, financial crime experts, and sanctions compliance consultants with a forum that aims to provide the most up-to-date knowledge and tools needed to help combat growing threats. Additionally, this Forum aims to give professionals the capacity and opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences and techniques in their given areas.

This international conference will feature government and private sector speakers who have expertise in the areas of counter-terrorism financing, counter-proliferation financing, threat financing investigations and sanctions compliance. Participants will learn about the latest sanctions evasion typologies, how blockchain forensics can trace cryptocurrency transactions, and have the opportunity in break-out workshops to work with a team to analyze a fictitious terrorism financing case, trace the transnational workings of a real North Korean proliferation-financing operation, and learn how network analysis tools can aid investigators.
