Meeting the Unique Regulatory Challenges of Cryptocurrencies and Virtual Assets

There are an increasing number of sanctions enforcement cases and penalties related to cryptocurrency exchanges and other cryptocurrency services, as well as regulatory requirements surrounding the use and transfer of virtual assets.

In response, compliance and legal teams are ramping up their manpower, expertise and process automation.

This brings to mind several questions: What are the obligations and best practices in terms of sanctions screening in key jurisdictions? How can traditional compliance programs be adapted to address virtual assets? What should the Fintech and financial sector know about sanctions screening and IP addresses?

Learn about this and more in this CSI-sponsored webinar during which seasoned industry experts pull from years of experience in handling sanctions compliance and blockchain matters.
