The internet brings both convenience and crime, including financial crime risks. This event offers views on the subject, from law enforcement agencies, regulators, blockchain analytics companies, as well as traditional financial sector and researchers.
The ever-expanding range of options for moving value online creates convenience but also leads to financial crime vulnerabilities. This applies in particular to FinTechs and cryptocurrency businesses. They have the benefit of relying on technology to a greater extent than traditional banks, but the financial crime risks they face and the defences they employ are often insufficiently understood by the broader community.
With speakers from across multiple sectors, this webinar aims to provide a current and comprehensive picture of financial crime risks in FinTechs and cryptocurrency, as well as analyse how they impact on the conventional financial system.
The discussion will be chaired by Brian Dilley, Group Director, Fraud and Financial Crime Prevention, Lloyds Banking Group.
