Compliance Officers, MLRO's and line management need a complete picture of the ways their firm can be attacked and be alert to the effectiveness of the controls they have in place.

This superb, intensive, 2 day programme will provide you with the complete picture on financial crime and the latest  developments. It is led by two truly international experts who provide the current risk picture from the internal and external investigator perspective.
