Sanctions Innovation and Technology Task Force (SITT)

The expert forum on the latest trends in sanctions technology

Our Goal

As has always been the aim of ACSS, we wish to not only provide the best training and development for sanctions professionals, but to arm sanction professionals with the know-how needed to carry out their daily duties with the upmost efficiency and effectiveness. To that end, ACSS has created the Sanctions Innovation and Technology Task Force (SITT).

Mission Statement

The mission of the SITT is three-fold:

  1. to share, discuss, and converse with ACSS members and the sanctions service provider community on best practices, future developments, and hot trends in sanctions technology;
  2. to assist ACSS in creating useful resources for the compliance community, such as: regular Tech Webinars ; Tech Articles, a Sanctions Tech Resource Guide ; and much more;
    as well as
  3. to become the leading body in the sanctions technology field.
