Financial crime is a well-known and widespread problem that impacts brand value and reputation, goodwill, and revenue of many organizations. In addition to the risk of losses from financial crime itself, companies also face spiraling costs in related areas.
Of the many vulnerabilities and threats to the financial services sector, financial crime risk has emerged as a pervasive, yet widely misunderstood category of risk. As consumers, governments, and the financial industry have gained familiarity with various forms of financial crime, financial services organizations have seen that the underlying risk of financial crimes not only includes the direct action taken by criminals, but also includes the impact of deterrence, detection, and resolution on the organization and its customers.
Financial services organizations have the difficult task of effectively identifying the greatest risks to themselves and to their customers, protecting both parties against unnecessary risks and satisfying regulatory requirements for greater transparency, awareness, and consolidation of information across the organization.
This interactive and engaging programme aims to help participants understand the financial crime regulatory framework; and develop a comprehension on the management of financial crime risks.
