Delve into the dark world of fraud, corruption, and money laundering with a rare view from the inside.
From touching on inconvenient issues like security, hiring decisions and background checks; to tackling complicated money laundering schemes, corporate fraud, bribery, blackmail, extortion and more, this session offers wise insights on human character and organizational culture that can help you to spot and avoid the perils of white-collar crime. It will also address the leverage that the digitalization of the financial industry is offering to criminals, and how to mitigate the negative impact to your firm. Chris is a unique, humorous, and fascinating speaker who will bring his lived experiences of working underground, into the light for the benefit of the financial industry.
