How to add predictive analytics into your risk program. Risk reports are often limited to historical insights and issues and do not provide guidance and insights into the future of the organization.

This can be achieved by combining internal and external key risk indicators (KRIs) and key performance indicators (KPIs) with regulatory intelligence. This ensures that risk reports can detect more issues and highlight areas of concern. Click here to learn more.
OFAC targets N Korean cyber hackers and Ugandan top cop
The Treasury Department issued two news releases on Friday concerning OFAC actions.

This activity included tactics such as cyber espionage, data theft, monetary heists, and destructive malware operations targeting government, military, financial, manufacturing, publishing, media, entertainment, and international shipping companies, as well as critical infrastructure.
OFAC also sanctioned the former Inspector General of Police of the Ugandan Police Force, Kale Kayihura, pursuant to Executive Order 13818, for having engaged in serious human rights abuse against Ugandan citizens, as well as for his involvement in corruption.
