Welcome to a half-day seminar on
Financial Crime Prevention

Wednesday 25 April, 2018
SAS Institute, Stora Frösunda, Solna (Sweden)

How will the profession and its practices change in future; threats and opportunities for us who are dedicated to combat financial crimes?

ACAMS Nordics Chapter and SAS Institute invite professionals as yourself, who are working with Financial Crime Prevention, to a free half-day seminar. Learn how to tackle the ever-increasing challenges in prevention and disruption of financial crimes.

What was needed in order to prevent and detect financial crime just years ago, will no longer give satisfactory results. As we know, criminal’s techniques constantly change, and therefore we, who fight them, must adapt. Inevitably, this give technology a critical role which can be seen in the uptake of tech conferences in our profession. But the value of technology is in large parts determined by how successfully we deploy technology to help us. We discuss which new skills and competencies are needed and we uncover the increasing importance of cross-functional teamwork and how innovative use of technology can help. 

We also discuss the prerequisites for getting value from technology. These may be access to good data, adequate analytical skills in the team, good collaboration between investigators and IT as well as management understanding for technology. Lastly, we emphasise that distinct processes and a well-defined governance will be just as crucial for your success as good data and modern technology.

Learn more about:
-  The role the Swedish Economic Crime Authority (Ekobrottsmyndigheten) have in order to prevent financial crimes, and what emerging trends they are facing.
-  Any financial institute must demonstrate robust governance, effective risk procedures and adequate internal control to manage their financial crime fighting activities. The Danish banking central SDC view their financial crime compliance as a competitive advantage that attracts customer and earns the trust of the public and regulators. Learn how process and technology enable a risk based approach!
-  Panel of leading experts that all have personal experience fight financial crimes from law enforcement and investigation as well as from financial institutions, revealing how they view both human and technological resources required in the future, mapping out skills needed in your financial crime fighting team.

The seminar will close with an optional, informal lunch amongst peers where you can discuss the impressions of the morning sessions.
