Financial Crime, a quick guide
About this event
In this session we will talk through the threat of fraud to all of us; be that as a consumer, a business owner or an employee. Demonstrating the highly organised way in which criminals operate to not only steal money but also the methods they use to distance their victims, and the victims bank from the proceeds. This is followed by a short overview on the theory of threat avoidance, some basic guidance on steps everyone should take and an overview of three common scams currently in operation. Michael is a counter-fraud practitioner with over 15 years’ experience in combatting serious organised criminality targeting consumers, retail and commercial banks with specialities in organised fraud contagion, strategic intervention and secure document verification. In Michael’s current role as Customer and Colleague Fraud Education Specialist he translates the often perceived complex nature of fraud into straight forward messages explaining the risks it possess, steps people can take to protect themselves, and what they should do to make sure others within their professional and personal lives are as resilient as possible. The session will be held via Microsoft Teams. For participants to make the best use of the session numbers are limited.
