  • (1888PressRelease) January 28, 2020 - This event is scheduled on Wednesday, February 5, 2020 from 12:00PM to 2:00PM ET.

    Event Synopsis:
    In May 2019, the US Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) published a framework for OFAC compliance. The core elements of the guidance are aimed at creating a tailored risk-based strategy to ensure sanctions compliance across an organization. It also outlines five components of a compliance program and it includes an appendix identifying the root causes of compliance breakdowns and deficiencies. To mitigate risks, it is imperative for companies to assess the adequacy of their OFAC compliance programs and to tailor them to target risks relevant to the business.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will present an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent developments in OFAC sanctions. Speakers will also present compliance practices and strategies to minimize compliance issues and prevent sanctions violations from occurring. The panel will also address the impact of a designation as a Specially Designated National (“SDN”).

    Key topics include:
    • OFAC’s Framework for Compliance Commitments – Overview
    • OFAC’s Five Components for Sanctions Compliance Programs
    • Common Causes of Sanctions Compliance Program Breakdowns and Deficiencies
