Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Thad McBride will present a training webinar titled, “Update On US Sanctions: Hot Topics And Compliance Best Practices” for GRC Educators. This program will cover a range of sanctions compliance topics. Beginning with an overview of US economic sanctions and embargoes rules and regulations, the panel will then cover key sanctions compliance issues. This will include topics such as conducting business with or in Russia, identifying and preventing prohibited facilitation of prohibited transactions, and strategies for conducting compliance audits and reviews.

The panel will then turn to recent sanctions enforcement actions to discuss the facts of those cases and the lessons that can be derived from them. Among other settlements, the webinar will cover sanctions penalties imposed against Apple and Apollo Aviation. Finally, we will cover specific sanctions compliance best practices for preventing and detecting – and responding if necessary to – sanctions violations. Many of the best practices will be addressed during other parts of the webinar, as they will warrant a mention in the context of discussions about compliance challenges and enforcement action in particular. We hope you can join us for this timely and practical program.

Areas covered include:

  • Overview of US economic sanctions
  • Recent enforcement
  • Compliance best practices

This webinar will be held on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST. For more information and registration, please visit the GRC Educators website.
