Bank Secrecy Act for Frontline Employees: 04. Customer Information Programs
- Gain an understanding of customer information programs.
As part of the USA PATRIOT Act, financial institutions are required to have customer identification programs, or CIPs. This helps prove customer identities, which is a key part in fighting money laundering schemes. In this course, we'll talk about what this means to you as a bank employee. We'll discuss the important distinction between customers and consumers, as they relate to BSA/AML. We'll go over who this rule applies to and the specific information you're required to collect to verify identification. We'll also look at specific recordkeeping rules for CIPs.
