The 2011 Malta International Financial crime forum comes at a time when corporate fraud and financial crime in general are key topics within the Financial Services industry.
Approximately 60 professionals from within Malta and internationally gathered this month to be brought up to date by a number of speakers drawn from the many disciplines of academia, law, accounting as well as law enforcement at the two event held in the Hilton Hotel.
The event, which was organised by the ICC’s Financial Investigation Bureau (FIB) together with the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) and Malta Financial Intelligence Analysis Unit (FIAU), provided a timely opportunity to debate recent trends with specialists in their field and to network about the risks and threats currently facing financial institutions.
In a packed programme delegates were advised on what are set to become the big issues in the coming year and how they may expect to have to tackle these issues, the delegates were exposed to the issues in both Malta and on an international scale with greater emphasis on the bold steps being made in the electronic verification of documents.
