2019 Compliance CPD Series – Session 2 – Sanctions Update

Course Summary

The key to staying on the right side of regulators is to understand your company’s exposure to sanction risk.


Sanctions are a key tool in the armoury of the global fight against financial crime and they regularly change. Understanding sanctions and how they affect your business remains a complex yet fascinating topic and is crucial for the development of a well-rounded strategy in combatting financial crime.

Dealing with sanctioned parties can be a risky business. National or international sanctions may be issued against individuals, entities, groups or nations; or even trading activities/particular sectors. Those bodies charged with enforcing sanctions compliance are particularly active at the moment, with multiple fines for firms in recent years stretching into billions of dollars.
