Representatives from Alert Global Media, American Bankers Association, CIBC, CitiGroup, Deutsche Bank, Ernst & Young, FleetBoston Financial, Royal Bank of Canada, U.S. Department of Justice and Wachovia Bank will be speaking at Retail Decisions' annual Risk Management Symposium, which will be held June 26 to 28 at the Hyatt Regency Newport in Newport, R.I.

The Symposium will provide an in-depth look at how new anti-money laundering legislation is changing the role of financial institutions in the government's heightened battle against illicit money laundering activities. Participants will learn how to cost-effectively set-up a compliance program, how to prepare for regulatory audits and come away with practical information about the latest account monitoring tools and technologies favored by security officers around the world.

"With the passage of the USA Patriot Act, the risks and legal duties of financial institutions and other businesses have increased dramatically," said Carl Clump, CEO of Retail Decisions. "The Risk Symposium will provide compliance officers and audit managers with up-to-date information about the tools used by leading organizations to monitor their customers' activities, comply with the new regulations and tackle the rapid developments and uncharted processes that must be implemented in the anti-money laundering arena."

Hosted by ReD PRISM, a division of Retail Decisions, the Symposium will feature interactive workshops, specialized conference sessions and informative case studies addressing solutions, strategies and `best practices' for detecting and preventing money laundering. The Symposium is open to a limited number of U.S., Canadian and international executives and managers from the financial services, retail and e-commerce industries.

Retail Decisions is a card-based transactions services business providing fraud prevention to the finance, telecommunications, retail and e-commerce sectors. For more information on the conference, visit
