Enterprise-Wide Sanctions Solutions

Today, achieving compliance with ever-changing sanctions regulations is a complex process. Regulations frequently vary across separate jurisdictions and their requirements change constantly, with very limited guidance available from the authorities themselves. In addition, bad actors are continually finding new methods to evade sanctions, such as by using cryptocurrency.

Enterprise-wide technologies and modern techniques are now being implemented in order to ensure that a company efficiently detects those looking to evade sanctions and stays compliant. But how does a company best utilise these modern techniques in order to create an enterprise-wide compliance system that works for them?

In this SanctionsAlert.com webinar, sponsored by world-renowned compliance experts – FICO Tonbeller, our speakers will discuss how sanctions are most commonly evaded today as well as how your company can employ an enterprise-wide solution to ensure compliance with complex sanctions regulations and avoid penalties.

You will learn:

  • How threat groups and hostile nation states evade sanctions;
  • A case study on how sanctions are evaded using cryptocurrency;
  • How terror and trans-national threat organizations use illicit money flows to fund their criminal activities and evade sanctions;
  • The nature of the hybrid threat; and lastly
  • How enterprise-wide sanctions solutions can assist your company to overcome sanctions compliance challenges.
