Edinburgh: Financial Crime Business Breakfast
Financial Crime and the Growing Cost of Behaviour Enabled Cyber Crime
The financial services sector faces challenges when it comes to tackling financial crime. This criminal activity not only results in losses for businesses, but can impact consumers too. Additionally, if the proceeds of crime go undetected, these funds could then be used to finance illegal or violent acts such as terrorism. When the real consequences of financial crime are understood, it becomes clear that legislators, regulators and firms themselves must all be actively engaged in managing this risk. Join us to hear more from our two leading industry experts in this field.
