Human trafficking, continues to be a significant problem in the United States. Every year, millions of people are bought and sold for the purposes of forced labor or sexual exploitation. It can happen to any demographic, any gender, any race or nationality.  Effective human trafficking controls lie in the ability for front line staff to identify suspicious behavior/activity and your fraud and/or AML system to identify suspicious activity.  This webinar provides practical training for front-line staff based on case studies/investigations in which customer service representatives and tellers identified human trafficking events. 

This webinar will also cover elder financial exploitation and identification, prevention and mitigating tools to implement into your daily standard operating procedures.  Elder adults are often targeted by three important factors including health issues resulting in aging, financial trends and demographic trends.  This webinar will take attendees through various methods for the identification of elder financial exploitation in your payments programs, at the branch location, in call centers and in your lending area.  This webinar will take a larger view of the most vulnerable areas in a financial institution that present possible elder financial exploitation events.  Learn how to prevent elder financial exploitation and how to effectively handle once identified to include an incident response take away document.
