About the Webinar

With a change in presidential administrations, economic sanctions programs and policies currently overlap, leading to uncertainty and new challenges from a host of areas:

  • Changes in sanctions for Iran and Sudan
  • Cyber-security sanctions directed at Russia
  • Conflict between the Trump Administration and Congress related to Russian sanctions relief
  • Silence about the new administration's approach to Cuba

In addition, OFAC penalties were recently adjusted for inflation, and the new figure to know is $289,238, making noncompliance even more costly. Yet, for informed and compliant companies, there are opportunities to do business under the various sanctions regimes.

This webinar will highlight some key U.S. sanctions programs, discuss permissible transactions under sanctions regimes, and review some recent settlements of cases involving sanctions violations.
