Below please find the June edition of BDO’s “Secure Company” Alert, which discusses the most current and interesting information about anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism (AML) and the scope of cybersecurity and data protection.
This time, our alert is dominated by topics related to anti-money laundering and cybersecurity. This is, first, because we discuss in more detail the Communication of the General Inspector of Financial Information on the scope of analysis to be performed by obliged entities, as defined in the AML Act, when assessing customers' transactions. Second, our focus is dictated by the fact that work is entering its final stages in the EU on the Regulation on Markets in Crypto-assets, amending Directive (EU) 2019/1937 (“MiCA”). The Regulation is the first attempt at comprehensive regulation of the operation of crypto-assets in commerce. It is also closely linked to anti-money laundering efforts.
The two topics are supplemented by a further discussion (following the May issue of the alert) of the revised whistleblower law and a text highlighting issues related to cybersecurity of company-owned smartphones.
We hope you find the following next portion of information contained in our alert useful, helping you efficiently navigate the regulations and trends related to cybersecurity.
As usual, we wish you a pleasant reading and in case you need additional, more detailed information, please feel free to contact our firm and experts directly.
