ACAMS Global Sanctions Space Summit


    Thank you for making #ACAMSSanctions 2021 a success

    To understand the vital role that sanctions continue to play on the international stage, you needn't look further than the roster of speakers at the 2nd Annual Global Sanctions Space Summit. Representatives from the White House National Security Council, OFAC, OFSI, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, United Nations Development Programme, and many of the world's largest financial institutions spoke on the evolving compliance concerns linked to geopolitical tensions in Eastern Europe, humanitarian aid in Afghanistan, and the rise of ransomware schemes. The caliber of the speakers reflected the association’s convening power and thought leadership in the ever-evolving sanctions sector.


    Top sessions included keynote addresses by the White House National Security Councils’ Special Assistant to the President and Senior Director for International Economics and Competitiveness, Peter Harrell and the United Nations Development Programme’s, Resident Representative in Afghanistan, Abdallah Al Dardari, a panel discussion headed by ACAMS Global Head of Sanctions, Risk and Compliance, Dr. Justine Walker, on the potential implementation of new Russia sanctions, fireside chats with OFAC Director Andrea Gacki and OFSI Head of Guidance and Engagement Freya Page, and a special presentation on ransomware and cybercrime by the White House National Security Council’s Director of Cybersecurity and Secure Digital Innovation, Carole House. The successful summit marked the second such event hosted under the leadership of Justine Walker.


    We hope that you found the summit informative and worthwhile. The primary goal was to bring together global sanctions professionals from all regions in an open dialogue, under one roof to discuss the pressing issues and to develop possible strategies to fight against financial crimes.


    Your presence helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped make our time together both productive and fun.
