Episode 5: Crypto Risk Assessed

Those in the private sector can often feel stuck between policymakers who fear cryptocurrencies are undermining their carefully built regulatory fortifications, and the online world of dark markets beyond those regulatory walls.

Host Tom Keatinge is joined by co-author Allison Owen, CFCS Associate Fellow, and Rodrigo Peiteado, Senior Manager of Digital Asset investigations at BVNK, to discuss a new virtual asset risk assessment guide for the private sector published by the CFCS.
