White Paper, Expert Available: Understanding the Ins and Outs of OFAC

Computer Services, Inc.:


        In light of recent high-profile regulatory fines and widespread attention on the potential strain Bitcoin may present to the U.S. Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) sanction programs, OFAC’s reach has moved beyond the financial services industry and into additional markets ranging from automobile, boat and motorcycle dealers to nonprofit organizations.

The increasing focus on OFAC compliance has made many businesses keenly aware of the need to better screen transactions against the OFAC Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list, which details the specific individuals and entities with whom all U.S. citizens and businesses are prohibited from doing business. In order to help organizations gain the knowledge and tools required to successfully tackle OFAC compliance, Computer Services, Inc. (CSI) (OTCQX: CSVI) has published a new white paper detailing the basics of OFAC compliance and specific steps businesses should take to ensure the success of their efforts.



Keith Monson, CSI’s vice president of application compliance, is available to provide his expert commentary on how businesses and organizations can effectively manage OFAC compliance and avoid potential fines and penalties for failing to meet the required regulations. Monson also can provide deeper discussion on the key points detailed within the white paper, including:

• Key regulatory penalties from OFAC;

• OFAC’s application across multiple industries;

• Basic requirements of OFAC’s sanctions programs; and

• Best practices for streamlining OFAC screenings.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general.

This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
