In May 2017, NCSC hosted an information-sharing workshop on the Prevention, Control and Sanction of Money-Laundering and the Financing of Terrorism. The workshop was designed to support the National Committee for Anti-Money Laundering by assisting in shortening processing times for intelligence analysis and improving the quality of intelligence gathered.
The workshop focused on strengthening three main areas, namely, human resources capabilities; governance (including quality processes, protocol improvement, technology subcommittee creation and technology strategic planning); and technology (including security, data dictionaries, virtual private networks, token driven consultation, web service creation and technology tools expansion). This was the second workshop held as a follow-up to an initiative which began in February 2013 by identifying priorities associated with addressing organized crime, and during which money laundering was identified as the area of greatest need.
The workshop was hosted as part of NCSC’s ongoing work under the Justice Sector Assistance to the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative Program (CBSI), funded by the Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs.
