TRAINING STRATEGY: GROUP-WIDE SANCTIONS TRAINING, DEUTSCHE BANK, FINANCIAL SERVICES
Frankfurt am Main, since 10/2017
As an institution, Deutsche Bank is exposed to financial crime in various ways, including through its customers, transactions, employees and suppliers. A transformation program has been established to ensure global compliance with the Financial Crime Prevention Guidelines (AFC) to minimize the risk of unintended non-compliance with anti-money laundering (AML) regulations and sanctions.
The training strategy project on sanctions and embargoes is part of this agenda. Training on sanctions and embargoes is central to raising the awareness of all employees and ensuring that they are aware of and comply with all applicable sanctions and embargo regulations. Training was provided to employees worldwide through multiple channels, online, WebEx and face-to-face. I currently support Deutsche Bank as a project, training, communications and change manager in the area of anti-financial crime, particularly sanctions and embargoes. I support the bank in the preparation, review and implementation of Group-wide sanctions training and communication as well as in training consulting for individual business areas and infrastructure functions.

The foreigners authority could thus work completely with an e-file and almost completely dispense with paper files. Within the scope of this project, I took on the role of project manager and business analyst. The activities therefore included classical project management tasks as well as as-is analyses. In addition, I was responsible for carrying out process, requirements and gap analyses. The modelling in ADONIS and the optimization of business processes.
