HM Government has recognised the threat posed by hacking, malware infections and DDOS attacks to the security and prosperity of the UK. In recognition of the economic underpinnings of cyber crime, the UK National Cyber Security Strategy 2016-2021 expressed the Government’s ambition to ‘tackle cyber crime upstream, adding friction to the criminal business model by dismantling their infrastructure and financial networks’.
On that basis, the objectives of this workshop are to develop a better understanding of money laundering techniques used by cyber criminals, identify how anti-money laundering (AML) responses can render cyber crime less lucrative, and examine the role of financial investigation in cyber crime cases.
This workshop is part of RUSI’s ‘Financial Crime 2.0’ programme, which aims to determine how the AML regime can be updated in order to be more effective and reflect today’s technological landscape. For more information, please visit: https://rusi.org/projects/financial-crime-20.
The ‘Financial Crime 2.0’ programme is funded by EY, Lloyds Banking Group and Thomson Reuters.
