The goal of the FIIS WG is to provide the financial services industry and the U.S. Government (USG) community with a forum to informally discuss relevant topics, including protection of critical financial infrastructure, prevention of fraud, and obstruction of threat finance and money laundering. In cooperation with the American Bar Association’s International Anti-Money Laundering Committee, we are pleased to present this slate of speakers and topics. The diversity of issues reflects the array of potential threats and vulnerabilities associated with abuses of financial and commercial systems.

The FIIS WG began in 2010 as a public-private partnerships pilot project out of the USG; grew into a free-standing, member-supported community; and is now an element of the American Security Project. Members include hundreds of representatives of both public and private-sector entities, including regulatory, intelligence, defense, and law enforcement agencies; financial institutions; think tanks; consultancies; and colleges and universities.
