Attensi releases AML training app

Gamified training solutions provider, Attensi has teamed up with anti-money laundering legal specialists at Advokatfirmaet Erling Grimstad to create a new interactive AML training app.

The new app presents practical examples and ethical dilemmas for participants to solve and has been built by factoring in trends and patterns used by criminals, so that employees can learn through scenarios that feel real.

Managing director, Erling Grimstad said: “Everyone in the regulated sectors needs to stay abreast of AML and be well-trained in how to spot suspicious activity. If an institution fails to comply with money laundering regulations it can have both a negative corporate and personal implication – still some people haven’t grasped that you can be investigated and charged as an individual if you don’t comply.

“Training is a vital part of the protection of the entire organisation. There is a legal framework and specific requirements to which you must comply, so our App documents all completed mandatory AML training for employees. Knowledge of threats and insight in the vulnerabilities in your organisation is key to build a culture of compliance.”

Sølve Johannessen at Attensi, developer of the App technology added: “Attensi has created a lot of different interactions to prevent this from just being a tick-box exercise and something people want to practice and get better at – it’s an enjoyable learning simulation that encourages players to repeat modules until they master the topic, or even beat their colleagues on a leaderboard.”
