Money-Laundering refers to the practice of presenting criminal activities as legitimate. In most cases, laundered money ends up in the banks. In order to ensure that banks play a whistleblowing role, they are required to use the most sophisticated technology to ensure this.This, therefore, means that banks need to put together the most effective tools to ensure this. The research will, therefore, seek to use techniques of empirical research to assess technology used by banks in the UK to evaluate and control the threat of money laundering.The research will be deductive qualitative research. As such it will utilize elements of primary data, the research will, therefore, be based on information collected from the various banks and activities found in the research. From this, there will be a deduction of trends and activities to find out whether the technology in use is effective or not.Sampling is necessary where the researcher cannot conduct a study of all the elements of the universal population under study. In the case of the UK, there is a vast range of banks that operate in this country. It is, therefore, going to be difficult to study all the banks.The research will, therefore, take one to five banks in each category, depending on present conditions. This will enable the researcher to get a fair idea of the systems of these banks for appropriate decisions to be taken.There will be two main forms of data collection in the research. This will be done through interviews and surveys. The various forms of risks, inherent, transactional, behavioral and analytical will be assessed in each bank through interviews with staff members, particularly managerial staff who have in-depth knowledge about these ideas and how it affects them in their peculiar setting. This interview will also gather information about the information system used by the bank and the software they use.
