Program Context and Overview

Global corporations and institutions are increasingly faced with complex and expanding expectations to manage compliance risks surrounding financial crimes.

Indeed, the ability of corporations to grow into new markets and product areas depends on their capacity to identify and manage FCC risk, and the regulatory and reputational challenges that will arise from a failure to do so effectively. Despite the importance of doing so, there is a dearth of sophisticated training programs that teach employees and business leaders to treat FCC risk management as an integral part of building and sustaining a global business.

In this context the International Sanctions and Financial Crimes Compliance Course will provide senior executives and FCC professionals with the expertise, skills, and judgment to comprehend and effectively manage evolving sanctions and related risks within global enterprises.

Through interactive in-person training and access to a customized library of content that FIN has developed, the program will meet the following objectives:

  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of today’s FCC risk and global regulatory environment;
  • Understand the ways in which management of FCC risk is integral to business decisions in a range of commercial contexts;
  • Achieve expertise across the expanding range of sanctions programs and related anti-money laundering requirements; and
  • Understand the roles and duties of different constituencies in the FCC ecosystem.

Who Should Apply?

The International Sanctions & Financial Crime Compliance Program is designed to address two main target audiences:

  • Senior Executive Leadership: Senior executives in the financial services, energy, manufacturing, trade, FinTech, and NGO communities bear ultimate responsibility for managing FCC risk and for building their enterprises in a manner consistent with FCC regulations and expectations. Senior leaders of these institutions must, therefore, have a sophisticated understanding of the FCC risk and regulatory environment.
  • Financial Crimes Compliance Professionals: In the post-9/11 era the FCC risk landscape has grown dramatically in scope and complexity. Financial crimes compliance professionals now must guard against the dangers posed by sanctions evasion, corruption, money laundering, tax evasion, and proliferation financing, among other risks. Adversaries are dynamic and constantly evolving the techniques they use to evade the systems and controls that companies have put in place to guard against abuse.
