Chicago, Jan. 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As part of its ongoing effort to keep compliance practitioners apprised of evolving global regulatory obligations and geopolitical risks, ACAMS will host a two-day training event for its 2nd Annual Global Sanctions Space Summit. Beginning on February 2, attendees of this fully virtual summit will hear guidance on how to navigate compliance hurdles from high-level governmental officials and sanctions experts, including representatives from the White House National Security Council, United Nations Development Programme, World Bank, U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), European Commission, U.K. Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI), NATO, U.S. Senate, U.S. Department of Commerce, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and many of world’s largest financial institutions and law firms.
In addition to answering questions submitted by summit participants, speakers at this one-of-a-kind event will outline best practices on such timely topics as potential compliance steps linked to the Russia-Ukraine crisis, providing humanitarian aid in Afghanistan, gleaning lessons from recent ransomware attacks, using blockchain and network analytics to safeguard trade finance deals, and managing cross-border compliance conflicts including that of China’s new anti-foreign sanctions law.
Peter Harrell, senior director of International Economics and Competitiveness at the White House’s National Security Council, will separately update attendees on the latest U.S. sanctions priorities in a keynote address.
“With global geopolitical tensions on the rise and sanctions increasingly deployed to fight cybercrime and protect human rights around the world, the work of compliance professionals has never been more complex or more important,” said ACAMS CEO, Scott Liles. “That’s why we’ve pulled out all of the stops for this summit to ensure that attendees will have the opportunity to learn from the world’s most knowledgeable compliance experts, including current and former directors of the today’s most active national sanctions enforcement agencies.”
“Whether you are seeking advice on strengthening compliance audits, concerned about the role of cryptocurrencies in sanctions evasion schemes, or preparing for the looming possibility of additional restrictions against Russia, the summit’s speakers can offer you practical guidance on how to shield your institution from regulatory and reputational harm,” he said.
Participants will be able to view panels in real-time or watch on-demand content that will be made available for 90 days following the conference. The full program for ACAMS Global Sanctions Space Summit can be found here.
