Security Testing Framework for AML Software: Safeguarding Sensitive Data and Mitigating Cybersecurity Risks

Praveen Kumar [76]

Abstract: In the rapidly evolving landscape of financial technology, Anti - Money Laundering (AML) software plays a crucial role in combating financial crimes and ensuring regulatory compliance. However, the sensitive nature of the data processed by AML systems makes them a prime target for cybercriminals and insider threats. This paper presents a comprehensive security testing framework designed specifically for AML software, focusing on safeguarding sensitive data, preventing unauthorized access, and mitigating cybersecurity risks. The proposed framework encompasses a multi - layered approach, integrating various testing methodologies and best practices to ensure the robustness and resilience of AML systems against potential security breaches. The paper explores the key components of the framework, including threat modeling, secure design review, vulnerability assessment, data protection testing, and continuous monitoring. By adopting this framework, financial institutions can enhance the security posture of their AML systems, protect sensitive data, and maintain the trust of their customers and regulators.
