State of Sanctions

The sanctions landscape is evolving and becoming more complex than ever before. The questions become, “What are the rules for doing business in Cuba? Why are the sanctions against Russia so complicated? Did the Iranian sanction go away?” and so on.

Furthermore, clarification around how many different types of sanctions there are, whether there are other lists we should be checking, and how to perform an OFAC risk assessment is helpful in navigating the current state of sanctions.

Today, financial institutions are exposed to greater sanctions risks, operational and oversight challenges, and obligations to comply with sanctions administered by OFAC and other agencies. This session will address these issues and what you need to be aware of moving forward.
