Data Analytics: A Step-Change in the Fight Against Financial Crime?

calendarclock - (GMT)

Analysis of large amounts of data is essential to addressing financial crime. This event explores how this can be done effectively by various stakeholders, from regulators to civil society.

This is the second one in a series of three webinars convened based on Financial Crime 2.0, a two-year programme on financial crime and new technology funded by EY, Refinitiv and (during its first year) Lloyds Banking Group.

The first webinar in the series was ‘How Can We Realise the Anti-Financial Crime Potential of Technology?’ on 14 December 2020 and the next one will be ‘Can We Stem the Tide of Financial Crime Online?’ on 1 March 2021.

There is a wide and ever-increasing array of actors that utilise data analytics for anti-financial crime purposes. Regulated entities use these techniques to detect suspicious transactions; supervisory authorities rely on them to prioritise oversight activities; and civil society organisations resort to analytics to investigate possible financial crime. Understanding this variety of applications and approaches is vital to advancing the effectiveness of data-driven financial crime prevention and detection.

This webinar will discuss how various actors use data analytics to tackle financial crime, what key barriers need to be overcome to ensure the effective use of data analytics, and how the application of data analytics for anti-financial crime purposes is likely to evolve in the future.

The discussion will be chaired by Che Sidanius, Global Head of Financial Crime & Industry Affairs, Refinitiv.

Speakers include:

  • Adam Hill, Lead Data Scientist, HAL24K;
  • Laura Hutton, Chief Customer Officer, Quantexa;
  • Olivier Kraft, Associate Fellow, RUSI; and
  • Keith Mularski, Managing Director, Consulting-Cybersecurity, EY.
