9:00 am - 11:00 am Combining Latest Investigation Techniques and Intelligence Exchanges to Combat Financial Crime

Financial crime remains a persistent challenge across all industries with 49% of organisations globally saying they’ve been a victim of fraud and economic crime – up from 36%. There is no foolproof method to prevent fraud; however a systematic and meaningful approach to reduce risk using modern techniques and working collaborative with other industries and businesses is key to managing crime in a timely manner when it does occur.
