Enhancing Sanctions Screening with Rigorous Risk Ratings and Data Analytics

  • When: Previously recorded on: October 7, 2015
  • Time: 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
  • Level: Advanced

Sanctions compliance is one of the more complex issues facing global financial institutions, and it has grown more complicated with issues like sectorial sanctions, negotiations with Iran and normalization talks with Cuba. Yet, for many financial institutions, sanctions screening can produce a bewildering volume of alerts and false positives that drive up costs, waste time and potentially damage customer relations. This webinar will instruct you on tailoring sanctions screening to diminish false positives. And it will demonstrate how to reduce alert clearing costs using AML expertise, risk-based management and data analysis.
