Sanctions Update: Keeping Up with Sanctions Changes with Robust Oversight Initiatives

  • When: September 26, 2018
  • Time: 12PM – 2PM ET
  • Level: Intermediate, Advanced

Sanctions management is increasingly complex, whether it’s staying current on the re-imposed economic sanctions on Iran, or navigating the complexities of sectoral sanctions. Institutions must deal with growing divergences between U.S. sanctions regimes and those of other governing bodies. Panelists will provide timely information on current sanctions changes and updates, and share practical, risk-based approaches for strengthening your overall sanctions compliance program.

Learning Objectives

  • Assembling human capital and technological infrastructure such as automated SDN screening to ensure timely responses to changing sanctions requirements
  • Enhancing enterprise-wide information sharing to bolster CDD, customer screening and transaction monitoring and identify and resolve potential sanctions-related red flags
  • Creating protocols for ongoing sanctions oversight, such as "micro" lookbacks of potentially problematic accounts, updating client profiles and standardizing account exiting procedures
  • Understanding AML challenges associated with Venezuela, including PDVSA’s bribery and money laundering charges, and currency control evasion via trade-based money laundering
