Course Overview
With Domestic and International Terrorism being at the forefront of law enforcement’s minds, it is important to understand how these threats are funded. This funding often originates from exploiting financial systems through scams and through other illicit means, such as drugs and trafficking.  

The course covers an introduction into “Threat Finance.” In this introduction, the course will also define the threat actors and the various methods used to generate, move, store, and use their illicit proceeds. The course will include a history of cryptocurrency and how it plays a role in financing various threat actors. This course will give students an opportunity to use critical thinking in practical exercises and discussions to further understand various elements needed for a terrorist plot.

The student will leave with the knowledge about the fundamentals of money laundering, financial system vulnerabilities, and financial intelligence support. Using lecture, discussion and practical exercise, students will gain an understanding of how all levels of law enforcement play a role in counter threat finance.
