CCI Featured Reviews From BIG

A well-designed course with the right balance between the necessary technical elements and the practical aspect of Investigation and Compliance.

Not only law enforcement officers, regulators, Fintech Compliance officers interested in Blockchain, DLT, and Forsenic, should attend.

The fact is that if you are working in traditional FinancialCrime, investigation, AML, compliance, Audit, legal, you better hurry up. With more and more investment banks, asset manager, and financial institutions globally getting their feet into this asset class, it is not a choice to ignore, but to understand, including the risk and the evolving regulatory expectations surrounding it.

The Certified Cryptocurrency Investigator module courses have significantly enhanced my technical skills in cryptocurrency mining, criminal schemes, blockchain forensics and AML cryptocurrency investigations. The law enforcement case studies are of real value for risk and compliance officers worldwide. As the blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies continue to evolve in a very dynamic way, I find extremely valuable the cryptocurrency criminal awareness techniques taught across all modules. Recommended for all financial services professionals looking to dig deeper into crypto compliance!
