Know Which Vessels are Safe for Business

Webinar: Case Studies and Q&A

On Demand - 60 Minutes

Sanctions evaders, much like other bad actors, employ deceptive shipping practices to conceal their true operations and to trade under the radar.

In this exclusive webinar, we will uncover real world cases of ships evading sanctions, review the legal implications and discuss how compliance teams are using 'Know Your Vessel' (KYV) to protect their organizations.

You will learn how to:

  • Recognize deceptive shipping practices used in various criminal schemes
  • Stay ahead of bad actors by monitoring vessel activity for red flags
  • Strengthen due-diligence with vessel behavior analysis
  • Use open-source movement data to investigate escalated cases
