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:
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.
