This course examines the enablement of new and traditional financial crimes by modern technologies, including the internet of things, big data, mobile devices and the internet. Explained to non-technical financial services audiences by way of numerous practical examples and case studies, the topic is brought to life by our experienced cybersecurity and fraud trainers.

The course also looks at the potential effects of emerging technologies and recent regulatory changes, such as GDPR and (Payment Services) Directive (EU) 2015/2366 (‘PSD2’) on future crime trends and related risks.


There are no prerequisites for this workshop other than an interest in good governance and effective control in the era of high-tech.
