Mr. Lormel retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in December 2003, following over 30 years of government service, almost 28 years as a Special Agent in the FBI. During his distinguished career, Mr. Lormel amassed extensive major case experience as a street agent, supervisor and senior executive, particularly in complex, document and labor intensive financial related investigative matters. In December 2000, Mr. Lormel was promoted to Chief of the FBI’s Financial Crimes Program.
Immediately following the terrorist attacks of September 2001, Mr. Lormel formulated, established and directed the FBI’s comprehensive terrorist financing initiative. He developed and implemented a variety of proactive and progressive investigative methodologies. These efforts evolved into the formation of a formal Section within the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI, known as The Terrorist Financing Operations Section. This multi-agency, multi-disciplined entity attained international recognition as one of the world’s elite operations for tracking, investigating and disrupting terrorist-related financial activity. For his visionary contributions, Mr. Lormel received numerous commendations and awards to include the Department of Justice, Criminal Division’s Award for Investigative Initiative and the Central Intelligence Agency’s George H. W. Bush Award for Excellence in Counterterrorism.
Over the last ten years Mr. Lormel has provided risk advisory consulting services. He is the founder and President of DML Associates, LLC, a full service investigative consultancy. Mr. Lormel provides consulting services and training related to terrorist financing, money laundering, fraud, financial crimes, suspicious activity and due diligence.

Mr. Lormel has shared his insight on terrorist financing and money laundering through speaking engagements at hundreds of domestic and international conferences, as well as through regular media interviews. In addition, he served as an Advisor to the Congressional Anti-Terrorist Financing Task Force and was a contributing expert to The Counterterrorism Blog. Mr. Lormel was presented with the 2010 Association of Anti-Money Laundering Specialists Volunteer of the Year Award.

I expected it to explain in detail how an auditor can detect any of the money laundering steps from books of non profit organizations and multinational companies which could be used to layer funds under various kinds of transaction, but it only explained what everybody already knows about terrorism stories of different attacks. DIssapointment.
