Sanctions are a key tool in the armoury of the global fight against financial crime. Understanding sanctions remains a complex yet fascinating topic and is crucial for the development of well-rounded strategy in combating financial crime. The ICA Advanced Certificate in Managing Sanctions Risk explores the intricacies and challenges of meeting sanctions obligations. You will learn about the latest sanctions challenges and best practice and you will review case studies so you understand the risks sanctions present to firms and the frameworks used to manage these risks. The course will also investigate key areas of sanctions controls such as sanctions screening, managing alerts and sanctions evasion typologies.
