The global scenery is constantly changing, especially with the ongoing war in Ukraine, causing new sanctions to be announced almost every day. It’s important for every business to understand its obligations in relation to domestic and international sanctions and embargoes, and how they may potentially impact their business before entering into arrangements with offshore clients or partners.

The compliance departments of compelled entities have long been concerned with sanctions and embargoes. This is also stated in the appropriate guidelines issued by all international regulators. Any organization subject to AML laws must have policies and processes in place to address and mitigate any risks associated with sanctioned entities and embargoed nations. With the crisis in Ukraine and the difficult sanctions put on Russia and Belarus by the EU and the US, this need is becoming even more pressing.

FEBIS (Federation of Business Information Services), with the support and sponsorship of Infocredit Group is organizing a free webinar with the subject: “AML, Sanctions and Embargoes: Understanding the risks and learn how to mitigate them”. The webinar will provide its attendees with the necessary knowledge on the field of Sanctions and Embargoes and will help professionals to understand the risks and to be in position to apply counter measures in order to mitigate those risks.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, 14:00 PM – 17:00 PM (UTC+02:00) on the Webex platform and the main agenda will include:

  • Sanctions and Embargos
  • Definitions and Case Studies
  • Financial, Reputational and Business Risks
  • World & European Sanctions
  • Russian Sanctions
  • Business Providers and how they are affected

Speaker: Theodoros Stavrou, Compliance Expert, Head of Compliance of Société Générale Bank – Cyprus
