Sanctions Screening: Navigating Today’s Connected Risk
Sanctions screening is a critical part of an effective compliance program, where access to accurate and up-to-date information is imperative. This paper provides an assessment of related sanctions risks, from relatives and close associates, to consequential criminal offences and methods of circumventing controls.
The paper urges us to look beyond sanctions lists to find a growing number of connected and emerging risks. In it, we explain:
- Iran sanctions and parallel risks
- Exponential increase of related offenses in a newly sanctioned country
- Crypto as a means of avoiding sanctions
