When people think of financial crime, often they associate it as a crime with no real victim or cost, or with no immediate impact to their normal, day-to-day life. In reality, financial crime is a trillion-dollar industry that takes an enormous social and economic toll on the communities it touches. From bribery and corruption that causes poverty and hunger, inhibiting economic growth and employment, or defrauding communities and nations, to a forced labor, sexual exploitation, human trafficking with 79% impacting women and girls (according to the UNDOC report from 155 countries). The cost of financial crime is very real.
