Money laundering and terrorism financing can have potentially devastating social, economic, and security consequences. Combating Money laundering is an important part of the overall fight to drug dealing, organised crime and since a number of years, also against terrorist financing. The past twenty years we can see an enormous amount of technological changes and the banking industry has to be prepared to adapt their procedures to the new innovative products and technologies. The aim of this paper is to define the impact of new products and technologies on banks’ practices in the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing. In order to meet our aim we analyse how the banking sector in Slovak Republic is prepared to handle these new challenges. We are evaluating primary and secondary data, using qualitative methods such as analysis, synthesis, comparison and basic statistical methods.
