Sanctions Innovation and Technology Task Force (SITT)

The expert forum on the latest trends in sanctions technology

Our Goal

As has always been the aim of ACSS, 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, ACSS has created the Sanctions Innovation and Technology Task Force (SITT).

Mission Statement

As has always been the aim of the ACSS, 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, the ACSS has created the Sanctions Innovation and Technology Taskforce (SITT).

The mission of the SITT will be three-fold:

  1. to share, discuss, and converse with ACSS members and the sanctions service provider community on best practices, future developments, and hot trends in sanctions technology;
  2. to assist ACSS in creating useful resources for the compliance community, most namely: the Sanctions Innovation and Technology Best Practices Book;
    as well as
  3. to become the leading body in the sanctions technology field.

How we work

The SITT 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.

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