Constant evaluation and testing of your sanctions compliance program are critical to its success. During this uniquely designed workshop, compliance professionals will have the chance to dive deeper into the nuts and bolts of building and maintaining a flexible, efficient and responsive compliance program – one that allows your business to thrive and take advantages of global opportunities while at the same time remain fully compliant with the law. Delivered by experts who have first-hand experience of building and running such programs, this session also provides a unique opportunity to benchmark your firm’s program against that of its peers.   Just some of the issues to be discussed during this comprehensive session include:
  • Common areas of risk to be taken into account when tailoring your program
  • Implementing a review and monitoring mechanism for your compliance program globally
  • Developing a risk-based approach to compliance program audits and monitoring of key controls
  • Why periodic audits are important and who should do the work (internal vs external?)
