Sanctions Tech Taskforce (STTF)

The expert forum on the latest trends in sanctions technology

Our Goal

As has always been the aim of SanctionsAlert.com, we wish to not only provide the best training and development for sanctions professionals, but to arm sanction professionals with the know-how needed to carry out their daily duties with the upmost efficiency and effectiveness. To that end, SanctionsAlert.com has created the Sanctions Technology Taskforce (STTF).

Mission Statement

The mission of the STTF is three-fold:

  1. to share, discuss, and converse with SanctionsAlert.com members and the sanctions service provider community on best practices, future developments, and hot trends in sanctions technology;
  2. to assist SanctionsAlert.com in creating useful resources for the compliance community, such as: a Comparative Grid of Service Providers, a monthly Technology Column, a Sanctions Technology Best Practices Book; and much more;
    as well as
  3. to become the leading body in the sanctions technology field.

How we work

The STTF meets bi-monthly (every two months) to discuss hot topics in sanctions technology, share insights about the latest upcoming trends that may impact the sanctions technology industry, and promote best practices for sanctions technology service providers.

STTF members contribute by submitting articles to our monthly Technology Column, assisting in the creation of the STTF’s annual Sanctions Technology Best Practices Book,conducting regular Technology Webinars on hot topics in sanctions technology, and consulting on our Comparative Grid of Service Providers.
