The Fight Against Money Laundering In The Digital Currency Age

“Like many illegal activities, money laundering is undergoing a revolution of sorts. That’s because technology, from online casinos and social media websites to the introduction of digital currencies, is offering alternative pathways for criminals to launder illegal profits. In spite of significant regulations designed to deter money laundering in the U.S. financial system, instituted shortly after the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, law enforcement agencies and financial institutions remain in a race to keep ahead of criminals. This white paper, brought to you by Thomson Reuters, explores the changes occurring in illegal money-laundering activities, and what financial institutions and law enforcement agencies are doing to combat this growing threat to the stability of the world’s financial system through the use of new strategies, regulations and technology.”
