Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) in the Corporate Sector

Understanding the Nature of the Compliance Risks Posed by Third-Party Vendors and Service Providers in the Fast Moving Global Compliance Environment.

Doing business with foreign entities in different regions introduces unique risks. These risks have become even more significant in recent years due to the increasing complexity of global financial crime regulations, the growing pressure from regulators and enforcement agencies, and the dramatic increase in applicable international sanctions.

Anti-money laundering and financial crime regulations, both at national and international level, require companies to be aware of the risks associated with their suppliers and other third-party vendors, such as subcontractors, agents, distributors, and vendors. These regulations specifically focus on anti-money laundering (AML), counter-terrorism financing (CTF), and anti-bribery and anti-corruption red flags, which could generate serious reputational risks.

ICC UAE in partnership with Moody’s Analytics Financial Crime Compliance Expert will deliver an awareness seminar on the following topics:

  • Connecting the Dots Between Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) in the corporate sectors,
  • Type of Sanctions, Blacklists, and other Watchlists, Requirements and Challenges,
  • Latest Sanctions Regime updates in context of Shell Companies, Sanctions Evasions & Exposure,
  • The Blind Spot of Third-Party Risks from an AML/CFT Compliance Perspective.
  • Trade Finance, Export / Import, and Trade-Based Money Laundering red flags.
  • Third-Party Risk and Know Your Supplier Compliance Risk Solution Approach & Best Practices,
  • Compliance in Court – Cases from the Public Domain.
