Transatlantic Response to Illicit Finance Taskforce Member
Ari Redbord is the Head of Legal and Government Affairs at TRM Labs. Prior to joining TRM Labs, he served as a Senior Advisor to the Deputy Secretary and the Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence at the United States Department of Treasury.
In this capacity, he worked with teams from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), and other Treasury and interagency components on issues related to sanctions, the Bank Secrecy Act, cryptocurrency, and anti-money laundering strategies.
Thoughts on the Taskforce on a Transatlantic Response to Illicit Finance (TARIF):
As illicit finance moves to a digital battlefield - think cybercriminals and ransomware attacks - cross border cooperation is more important than ever. Both the U.S. and the U.K have acknowledged the emerging threat and the need to foster transatlantic cooperation to combat threat actors who can now move illicit proceeds in cryptocurrency at the speed of the internet. I joined TARIF to bolster the "special relationship" when it comes to stopping illicit actors from abusing the financial system of the future.

TARIF aims to strengthen global democracy by identifying viable ways in which the UK and US can combine efforts in tackling illicit finance.
