This program focuses on compliance and regulatory challenges as well as understanding the use of cryptocurrencies to launder money or finance terrorism. Like any store of value—including fiat currency, precious metals and precious stones—cryptocurrencies can facilitate a broad range of illicit activities, including the sale of illicit goods and services, fraud schemes, and terrorism.

Come hear our three experts discuss the challenges regulators, law enforcement and the intelligence community have in collecting, analyzing, and investigating cryptocurrency transactions and mitigating threats.
