APAC Focus: Building a Collaborative Approach between Public and Private Sectors

  • When: March 9, 2018
  • Time: 10:00 – 11:00 HKT

Identifying and addressing financial crimes, including those associated with human trafficking, narcotics, terrorist financing and fraud, requires collaboration. Successful public-private partnerships enhance investigation outcomes by allowing both sectors to share the latest trends in financial crime. This webinar will look at joint investigations and offer insights on how banks can provide assistance to law enforcement in the fight against financial crime. Our panelists will also provide strategies for conducting a joint post-investigation review to determine best practices for future collaborative efforts.
