The COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent workplace disruptions have had a major impact on the financial services sector, in particular how they combat financial crime.
Following a successful pivot to virtual events in the first half of 2020 for their PrivSec series of events, GRC World Forums have announced the launch of FinCrime World Forum which will be live streamed to a global audience on December 1st and information and news portal FinCrime.Report launching today.
As financial institutions continue to face these unprecedented challenges and ensure compliance with Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Know your Customer (KYC), and sanctions regulations information sharing, and collaboration is key.
FinCrime World Forum will be attended by an audience of senior decision makers seeking; information, guidance and insight.
Nick James CEO of GRC World Forums said;
“Since pivoting to virtual events in March, we have welcomed over 20,000 attendees from 118 countries to our high-impact and editorial driven events and an average of 65,000 people visit our websites every month. FinCrime World Forum and FinCrime Report will be jam-packed free-to-access programmes with inspiring future-facing content from subject matter experts and thought leaders.”
The FinCrime World Forum live-stream event will provide senior financial crime leaders and executives with critical information, indispensable business insights and advice and will offer a select group of vendors the opportunity to present and sponsor conference streams alongside keynote speakers and subject matter experts.
Nick James went on to say; “We specialise in creating and curating engaged GRC market places and we had planned to launch these initiatives mid 2021. As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic environment we have fast tracked the launch as financial institutions have to continue to manage compliance obligations, adapt to the challenges of working in a remote environment and deal with a rapid increase in the number of financial crime scams.”
GRC World Forums is a trusted information source for more than 550,000 GRC professionals worldwide.
