We must follow strict compliance and sanction screening processes for all transactions to avoid financial risks. Violating these rules could lead to regulators freezing our bank accounts, endangering the company’s existence. 

Perhaps an exaggeration to say that the world is on fire because of money laundering, wars, not to mention ever-increasing cyber risks.
