Sanctions, KYC and CDD: How Customer Screening is an Integral Part of Your Overall Risk Program

Banks generally have customer screening in place as part of their OFAC/sanctions risk program. This webinar will discuss considerations around that program including best practices around sanctions screening – even if you have deemed this area as lower risk within your organization. However, we will go a step further: how can customer screening improve your overall customer risk? We will also look at ways that screening customers can help you build a better customer risk profile, serve as part of your CDD program, and supplement your bank’s AML transaction monitoring program.
