Screen This Avoid That, by Crystal Noe, distills more than two decades of Regulatory changes and requirements within the Sanctions space. She guides the readers through OFAC’S ever-increasing regulatory expectations, building the reader’s knowledge as she provides a walk-thru of the OFAC trilogy, their Framework, Enforcement Guidelines, and Virtual Currency Guide. Provides an extensive list of data to apply for screening and sanctions analysis. Then she cites examples from precedence setting OFAC settlements that have shaped today’s OFAC requirements. This book is the first of its kind, and provides the readers with a list of critical controls to implement, audit, and validate.
What Need Does This Book Solve For?
The book aims to fill the void of educational materials within the sanctions compliance space; predominantly the void of materials explaining today’s regulatory expectations, the catalyst for those expectations, and the pitfalls to avoid when designing your sanctions controls (based on historical OFAC violations and settlements).
How Can It Help You?
It provides a historical view of sanctions compliance, and how regulator expectations have evolved over time citing OFAC settlements, violations, and guidance materials. It then distills those regulatory expectations into technical best practices that can be understood by both technical and non-technical resources.
Is this Book for Technical or Non-Technical People? Both!
Non-technical compliance resources (e.g. policy heads, counsels, compliance officers, etc.) will learn “what compliance looks like” from a technical perspective, gaining a better understanding of what to include in requests to their technical partners as well as what types of questions to ask.
Technical resources (e.g. engineers data scientists, engineers, vendors, analysts, etc.) will gain a fundamental understanding of “what building a compliant process” looks like, the linchpins to sanctions compliant engineering, and past engineering mistakes of others to avoid.
A first-of-its-kind book by Crystal Noe, a sanctions compliance pioneer with more than 20 years of experience in Compliance. She has led global screening programs for Citibank, for Meta (including Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp), and helped clients across the globe.

Competitive Edge, Learn from My 20 Years of Experience
Sanctions regulators, legal counsel, compliance officers, auditors, engineers, risk professionals alike, regardless of your role or tenure within Sanctions Compliance, you likely have already realized that most Sanctions related articles focus on the legal and regulatory interpretation of sanctions compliance. Nothing out there will tell you what that looks like from the perspective of systems, rules, or technical controls. There is no check list you can download.
Simply put, there are no schools, degrees, or certifications that can prepare you to design, audit, automate, or validate the technical aspects of a Sanctions program. And, for my non-tech readers, if you have ever asked your technical resources to build, query, or fix a compliance process or tool, you quickly realize there is a large communication divide, or you realize this after-the-fact as new gaps appear in the recently built solutions. My book is hoping to bridge these gaps.
