A lecture by Lisa Osofsky, Director, Serious Fraud Office (SFO).

In this lecture, Lisa will explore the challenges posed by globalisation, the increasing sophistication of communications technology and the exponential growth in data for law enforcement seeking to tackle economic crime. She will discuss the tools, powers and opportunities that law enforcement must exploit to meet these challenges. Lisa will also outline how criminal justice partners across the world must be as agile and collaborative in sharing information and working together, as the sophisticated criminals who take advantage of the shrinking world pursue their criminal ends.
