Corporate Governance Event - Sanctions Control

Andrew Kitchen 23.10.2015

We successfully held our second Corporate Governance event on the very hot topic of Global Banking Sanctions.

In conjunction with Risk Audit Professional Development, Chris Hollands led us through what has become a bit of a minefield over the past few years, especially given the record fines meted out by the US regulators. 
While the subject matter was very broad, it certainly gave a good taster as to the challenges faced when reviewing Sanctions. 

It included topics such as:
1)    Definitions and the Structure of Regulation 
2)    Key Risks and the commensurate Controls found in a Financial Institution
3)    Approach to Testing
4)    Recent Cases
5)    12 Key questions you need to ask
