The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in cooperation with ICC Cyprus is organizing the above mentioned forum on the 28‐29 April 2015.
The Forum will look at practical approaches to identify and tackle the potential pitfalls faced by those using financial instruments within international banking and financial services. Held over two days at the Hilton Park, Nicosia, the Cyprus International Financial Crime Forum will provide practical examples and case studies to highlight the damaging effects of money laundering and corruption on the financial system and businesses. Expert lawyers and practitioners will discuss the difficulties in collecting evidence especially in a multijudiciary environment.
This year the event will also inspect the need and value of whistleblowing as well as the requirements and implications of Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs). Last but not the least; and outline on the technological advancements and their potential benefit to business will be discussed.
I'm honoured to have been invited to give a talk on whistleblowing at this year's forum in Cyprus, as a follow up to my published article in April's edition of Commercial Crime International. A tough job, but one that I've happily embraced! Stay tuned for further updates and I will certainly be blogging about the experience.
