    Event Synopsis:
    Recently, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has announced settlements with HyperBranch Medical Technology, Inc. and other three separate Alcon companies to resolve apparent violations of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations (ITSR). These enforcement actions simply demonstrate OFAC's heightened scrutiny of companies with laxity in sanctions compliance programs. Thus, it is imperative for companies to secure a robust compliance program that is in accordance with OFAC's standards in order to reduce multiple violations and avoid hefty civil penalties.

They will provide an in-depth discussion of recent enforcement actions, latest trends and critical compliance issues and risks. Speakers will also offer best practices in establishing and strengthening comprehensive compliance program.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    -OFAC Compliance Program - An Overview
    -Recent Enforcement Actions
    -Violations, Sanctions and Civil Penalties
    -Implications on International Markets
