In the recent years, many international banks have been fined because of violations of sanctions programs imposed by the United States, the European Union, and others. The consequences of non-compliance have been severe in terms of financial penalties, loss of business, and reputational damage. So, financial crimes regulations and sanctions programs remain a major concern in the international banking landscape, including the MENA region.

The aim of this webinar is to keep the attendees abreast and knowledgeable of the latest development related to sanctions by providing them valuable insights on various sanctions programs in general, their global applicability, and the key tools for due diligence.
