Sanctions Effectiveness: Combining Multiple Factors to Identify Inherent Risk

  • When: July 20, 2020
  • Time: 11:00 – 12:00 PM ET

As networks of sanctioned people, organizations and entities continue to expand, the effectiveness and parallel risks of current sanction models is worthy of debate. Evasive tactics continue to be exploited by criminals, including the rise of cryptocurrency use among sanctioned individuals and how affiliates can be utilized to circumvent these restrictions. In this webinar, we distinguish between two sanctions models – Targeted and Comprehensive – to explore their differences and discuss how financial institutions can balance risk factors, identify trends and bolster their program in the current state of global anti-financial crime and AML initiatives.
