Successful export compliance programs hinge on understanding your customers, supply chain partners, and distributors. However, validating the ultimate end-users and purposes of the exported goods and technology can be challenging. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how to perform your own verification checks.

You will learn how to:

  • Leverage your existing knowledge
  • Conduct open-source research online
  • Explore the significance of document review to extract maximum value from client-provided information
  • Tap into free and low-cost web sources for statement verification
  • Employ social media search techniques to gain insights into customers and their businesses
  • Enhance telephone or video interviews by identifying signs of deception.
