According to the FBI, intellectual property (IP) theft costs US businesses billions of dollars a year and robs the economy of jobs and lost tax revenues. This growing threat is a prime concern for financial institutions—criminals need to process payments for counterfeit goods and for pirated information downloaded from their websites.

Does your institution screen for the key indicators of pirating and counterfeiting? Are you familiar with the methods IP thieves are using to disguise their ill-gotten funds? Led by expert presenters representing law enforcement, pharmaceuticals and luxury goods, this session dissects real-life examples of IP criminal typologies to expose common themes that can be identified and reported.
