RiskConnect Virtual 2021

Asked why he robbed banks, prolific US bank robber Willie Sutton is alleged to have responded, that’s where the money is. In the modern economy, data equals money, so hold-ups have gone digital.

Criminals have adapted well. They’re masters at making crime pay, whether that’s inventing new online scams, or putting a digital spin on old, real-world crimes.

We’ve made ‘Following the Money’ the theme of RiskConnect Virtual 2021. We hear from experts in their field as to how crypto swindlers, counterfeiters, online pirates, website cloners and many more operate. Plus, how anti-fraud, risk and compliance professionals can fight back.

It takes a network to catch organised criminal networks. Increasing the effectiveness of response through collaboration with vendors, peers, card schemes and law enforcement is now more important than ever.

With that in mind, we’re pleased to welcome you to Risk Connect Virtual, the aim of which remains connecting the industry and encouraging dialogue and collaboration in the fight against financial crime.
