Money laundering: situation, evolution and cyberspace
Latest trends in anti-money laundering and financial crime prevention
The financial technology service took off in popularity so fast, without the regulatory mechanism able to catch up in time, resulting in people having bank accounts away from the eyes of governments and tax institutions. Join the event organized by the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce together with ISM University in exploring the latest trends related to anti-money laundering (AML) within the financial sector and hear the experts share the steps companies take in order to prevent fraud and money-laundering.
The event will also include a keynote address by Eric Vernier, the dean of ISCID CO International Business School in France and a world-renowned expert in anti-money laundering techniques.
The event is open and free, it will take place in person, and will be in French & English (simultaneous translation). Registration is required.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Anthony Poullain, Vice-President of the French-Lithuanian Chamber of Commerce.
*Speakers will represent their own views from personal experience but not necessarily the views of the organization they work for.
