Open-Source Data to Support Counter-proliferation Finance and Anti-money Laundering Due Diligence Initiatives

In June 2021, the FATF issued new guidance on Proliferation Risk Assessment and Mitigation, yet many in the private sector remain uncertain as to how to adapt their compliance systems to identify and manage proliferation financing (PF) risks. Private sector entities need to implement new measures and have in place processes to assess, monitor, and mitigate PF risks, but often have little familiarity with the topic of proliferation finance generally. What kind of information is available to better understand PF risks, and where can firms find useful data and case studies to address PF risks and enhance existing due diligence initiatives? Join us to learn more about publicly available and free information on proliferation finance trends, indicators, and how to use such data to strengthen compliance systems.
