“For anyone who has spent time reviewing names on the denied parties web site, knows the struggles in dealing with the nuisance names and the number of false positives returned,” said Ken Harris, managing partner of MK Data Services. “These hits present an additional burden of time and money to the screening process, as many companies have been forced to hire additional personnel just to clear false hits.”
MK Data is offering two webinar sessions on weak aliases. The presentation will discuss the following questions:
• What constitutes a "Weak Alias"?
• Who is required to screen against weak aliases (AKA)?
• What other lists are also affected?
• Who defines a weak alias list?
Who: Ken Harris, managing partner of MK Data Services and
Erich Ferrari, D.C.-based attorney specializing in OFAC matters
When: Two days: June 22, 2 – 3 p.m. EDT
