This interactive workshop enables participants to understand financial crime risks whilst providing guidance on the most effective controls needed to mitigate and manage them. It focuses on the modern cross-cutting issues of money laundering, bribery & corruption and fraud & cyber-crime, picking up the emerging issues.

This is a practical workshop, peppered with examples from cases and with analysis of recent reports and trends. It highlights the key controls and shows delegates how to gain assurance that these controls are working effectively, whilst placing them within an overall framework of good governance and business ethics.

Huge fines and a drive towards holding those in senior management positions personally accountable – this is the modern response of the authorities to financial crime.
