Over the coming months, a series of regulatory changes is now contending for Business and Financial Crime team’s focus, adding a new level of complexity and opening up an imperative to refresh systems, processes and compliance frameworks. With AUSTRAC witnessing an increase in reported breaches, incidents, and suspicious activity, this opening session will set the scene for the main conference and identify the number one priorities businesses now need to be across:

  • Growing intelligence capabilities and joint initiatives to detect and disrupt money laundering and terrorism financing
  • The value of reporting & disclosure: preparing a team and compliance framework to work alongside more embedded regulatory presence
  • Industry impacts of legislation and enforcement on information sharing, scrutiny, and external risk
  • Tackling awareness and readiness for new and incoming financial crime trends

Patrick Ford - Global Manager AML Operations, ANZ
Andrew Lawrence - Senior Legal Officer, Fraud Security & Integrity Reform, Attorney-General’s Department
A coordinated industry approach is now critical to getting ahead of FinCrime developments by developing a solid network and cross-industry task force that can more easily share intelligence on a proactive basis. The flow of information and levels of collaboration are, however, far from seamless, requiring new levels of trust and confidence in partnerships to become more effective.

This Panel Discussion will draw together key industry representatives to reassess the ways organisations can improve approaches to data and intelligence sharing uplift:
  • Collaboration versus cooperation- how do we work more effectively across the ecosystem by establishing trust and relations that can prevent criminal activity before and as it happens?
  • How can we formalise external communications and data sharing against the backdrop of privacy issues?
  • How do you adapt culture to relieve pressure and resistance to disclosing concerns and/or breaches?
