"'On Day 1 the trainer already made me think in ways I had not done before. Very beneficial.'"
Audit manager, United National, Geneva

Any company or institution can be a victim, actually or potentially, to one of the many facets of financial crime e.g. money laundering, fraud, computer intrusion, terrorist financing.  Would you know how to prevent it, detect it or investigate it?

This course is designed to complement an institution’s existing practises in the areas of financial crime.  It explores these three areas in depth, offering practical advice derived from a wealth of case studies and delivered in an interesting and interactive manner.


"'A very useful course and excellent trainer! The most impactful topics were sanctions and cyber crime.'"
