Avoid Fines and Even Jail Time for Noncompliance

As the U.S. and other governments continue to aggressively enforce laws governing financial crimes, it is critical for companies to understand their obligations and know the steps to take to ensure compliance. Laws including the Bank Secrecy Act and regulations from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) are in major play now, and if your company deals with foreign transactions at all, you need to make sure you are in compliance. Civil penalties and criminal fines, as well as time in jail are all possible.

Join this session, where expert speaker Thad McBride will provide an overview of the key U.S. economic sanctions and anti-money laundering (AML) laws and offer guidance on best practices for compliance. Thad will also discuss real-life examples of how companies have gotten in trouble – and how to avoid trouble – as the regulators continue to aggressively pursue financial crimes. 

This session will discuss in greater detail what laws your enterprise needs to understand and comply with when conducting business internationally. You will learn about potential blind spots that can get companies in trouble, and the learn strategies for spotting and addressing those trouble areas.

The session will also help you conduct a careful assessment of your organization's risk of sanctions and AML violations, communicate with relevant personnel about the applicable laws and challenges, and implement solutions to protect against noncompliance.
