Episode 25: 3 Ways to Maintain OFAC Compliance Beyond Vendor Setup

On today’s podcast we are going to talk about maintaining compliance for a US sanctions list, the OFAC SDN list.  If you only check vendors against this list at the time of vendor setup and then forget about it – you need to listen up.  I will review why you need to monitor, give two examples of fines for OFAC violations , and then talk about how you can monitor your existing active vendors.
