Economic Crime Congress 2020 Testimonials:

A very well organised event that is very relevant to the current fraud landscape. The next step is to put into actions the positive intentions that have arisen from this collaborative event”

Enjoyed the plenary sessions. Good speakers, panels. Attended the Fraud sessions. I liked the mix of individual speakers and panel discussions. Always enjoy speeches from Law Enforcement. “

All the sessions I attended were relevant and gave useful information on the current situations as well as what is coming in the future as well as examples of what firms/banks are experiencing currently”

This is an event that anyone working in the financial sector should consider attending whether or not they are directly involved in managing financial crime prevention in their organisation. It's a great opportunity to hear about current and future threats and sharing how these threats are being tackled.”
