Sir Rob Wainwright will kick off two days of debate, insight and virtual networking at the FinCrime World Forum next month.

The former Europol director, and current senior partner at Deloitte will use his opening keynote speech at the two-day virtual event next month to talk about the growing threat of financial crime.

This will lead in to 28 sessions involving more than 40 speakers at the free event, which is organised by GRC World Forums and takes place on 23 and 24 March.

Sessions will be grouped into themes including compliance in a crisis, information transparency, the virtual assets debate, global regulatory challenges and the use of technology to fight financial crime.

We will bring you the latest debate on how Covid-19 has transformed financial crime and how you can plan your compliance priorities. We will bring you the latest insights on what Brexit means for effort to combat financial crime in the United Kingdom and European Union.

Our virtual assets sessions include conversation on the way blockchain is transforming compliance, the myths of cryptocurrencies and the likely impact for banking of DeFi technologies.

Corporate transparency is currently a major talking point globally, not least because of the new Anti Money Laundering Control Act that has passed into law in the United States. You can hear debate on why the corporate transparency drive matters and what the key challenges are for President Joe Biden’s presidency. You can also hear discussion of how we balance financial crime information-sharing, privacy law requirements and encryption.

On the second day of the event we will focus on artificial intelligence and other technologies, why transparency can be illusory, and why building diverse teams has never been more important. The final afternoon will see our focus shift to discussing challenges for regulatory compliance cglobally, including effective risk management, due diligence in the age of digital identifciation and a spotlight on modern slavery, with Andrew Wallis, Chief Executive of the charity Unseen.

Other speakers confirmed include Graham Barrow, Director of the Dark Money Files, Jim Richards, Founder & Principal of Regtech Consulting, Hugo Veazey, Director of Anti-Financial Crime Solutions, Amanda Wick, Chief of Legal Affairs at Chain Analysis and Charles Brown, Head of Community at Blackdot Solutions.

In addition to the two days of free content, you will also be able to network with your peers, take part in discussions in message boards and visit sponsors’ booths.

If you are not able to watch any of the shows live, you can watch them on-demand whenever you wish. You can also watch sessions from our previous PrivSec Global event, in November.
