The Project Futures workshop at Glaziers Hall, London Bridge in December 2019 focused on the case for greater investment in technology and the centralisation and consolidation of department responsibilities in order to improve the fight against fraud and financial crime.
The discussion focused on the following themes:
• Management of risk
• Fraud prevention
• Money laundering compliance
• KYC checking
• Cyber security defence
The workshop was structured around four interactive breakout sessions:
• The advantages and disadvantages of centralisation and consolidation
• The market trends and impact
• The opportunities, barriers and challenges
• Regulatory factors, technology and innovation
