Recorded Webinar: Fighting fraud and financial crime with RegTech

24 June 2021

Financial fraud and crime continue to escalate causing significant damage to companies, countries and the global economy despite enormous efforts by firms and organisations in the financial services sector to identify and expel bad actors.

As these bad actors use increasingly sophisticated techniques to break into financial institutions and extract both money and data, so too are FIs and solution vendors developing next-generation technologies, tools and techniques to cut down financial abuse and stem the monetary and reputational losses of financial crime.

This webinar will cover:

  • The extent of financial crime and the need for change
  • Regulations covering fraud and financial crime
  • How to ensure regulatory compliance
  • Proactive approaches to financial crime beyond compliance
  • Helpful technologies, solutions, tools and techniques
  • The benefits of getting financial crime right and the costs of getting it wrong
