Financial Crime Risk Management

Financial Crime Risk Management - 1-day Course

In an environment where financial crime is increasingly being punished with huge fines and the attribution of personal responsibility to senior management, the need to understand, prevent and control such crimes has never been greater.

This one-day Financial Crime Risk Management course is designed precisely to give you a sound understanding of the risks associated with financial crime, as well as the controls needed to manage them effectively. Focusing on the modern issues of money laundering, corruption, fraud and cyber-crime, the programme is highly interactive and makes use of recent cases and reports to illustrate the concepts covered in a practical way. Key topics include:

  • Financial crime threat analysis and controls framework
  • Overview of the new regulatory and crime prevention regime in the UK.
  • Current and emerging money laundering risks (e.g. Isil & terrorist financing, information exchange & FACTA and virtual currencies & bitcoin)
  • Bribery and corruption – update and review of the ripple effects of the Bribery Act 2010
  • Fraud - review of the key risk areas including cyber-crime, insider dealing and management fraud
  • The people factor – motives, behaviour and the drive for personal accountability • ensuring that the key controls are effective: training; risk assessment; due diligence; whistleblowing hotlines; and audit
