patriot act compliance

The Patriot Act, which amends the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA), was adopted in response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The Patriot Act is intended to strengthen U.S. measures to prevent, detect, and prosecute international money laundering and the financing of terrorism. These efforts include anti-money laundering (AML) tools that impact the education community. The provision of the Patriot Act that has resulted in the most substantial business practice changes in the educational institution industry revolves around “know your customer” requirements applicable to specific educational institutions.
