Training

If your organisation needs to improve its knowledge and skills in financial crime prevention and how to use screening to minimise risk, then your first port of call should be a training course designed and delivered by SQA Consulting.  One option is to attend our one day workshop run in partnership with the BBA:

https://www.bba.org.uk/training/workshops/financial-crime-workshops/sanc...

Instead of, or as a follow up the workshop we can deliver a bespoke course tailored to the needs of your organisation.  Our courses can cover every aspect of the topic including the legal background; definitions and scope; high risk jurisdictions; managing risks; country programmes; prosecutions and enforcements; processes and technology; achieving compliance etc.  Our courses are always practical in nature.  Some example topics include:

Data Quality - a practical demonstration of how to perform data quality analysis on a feed of customer data prepared for sanctions screening

Fuzzy matching - a look at various fuzzy matching tools and how they can be used to deliver quality matches from your sanctions screening systems

Sanctions lists - what do they contain, from where can you get them, what do they omit, and how should you use them?  Includes practical examples.

CTRP - what can CTRP (Cities, Towns, Regions and Ports) screening achieve, and how to access lists and other information.  Includes practical examples.

Screening Assessment - how to conduct an end to end screening assessment to determine if your approach satisfies your policies and meets your expectations

Vessels - vessels have long been a part of the OFAC list, but why are they there and how do they help?

PEPs - often seen as a poor relations to sanctions screening, PEPs screening is mandated by regulators but often done poorly.  Fines are now being imposed for PEPs only breaches.
