Kuala Lumpur, Selangor Malaysia (PressExposure) July 17, 2008 -- The Financial Crime Forum in conjunction with The Chief Officers' Network announce the holding of "Combating Internal Threats," an international Forum / Seminar for businesses in all sectors of trade and financial services. The Forum will be held in Hong Kong on 25 - 26 September 2008
Every year, surveys show that around 80% of crimes committed against corporations involves an employee of the company. And that's not including the spectacular "rogue traders" that cause immense harm to financial services businesses.
Yet it's something far too few businesses are willing to think about. Indeed, when a large financial institution announced that it was installing technology to monitor its own staff, that very fact caused considerable comment.
If you take no steps to protect against your own staff, you are at risk of being the next victim.
The Financial Crime Forum Asia Pacific in Hong Kong from 25-26 September 2008 is an international event for businesses of all size. Speakers include specialists from screening experts who will explain how to assess new staff, from law firms who will explain the nature and value of contracts in relation to, for example, protecting your customer lists and other commercially valuable data against theft by employees, technology companies who will explain how to monitor staff for suspicious behaviour and explain the technologies used to steal data and what technology you can use to protect against its theft; case studies include the creation of a business within a business, how false invoicing and other document-based schemes work. Public relations consultants will explain how to handle the media fall-out, and markets specialists will explain how to handle statutory reporting issues when a public company is a victim. And you will hear about effective whistle-blowing policies.
Protecting your company against internal misconduct is about more than just fraud or embezzlement: it's about protecting your company's reputation. You will hear about malicious acts designed to cause harm to a company from within.
Every year, businesses collapse because of harm done to them by employees.
Combating Internal Threats from The Financial Crime Forum and The Chief Officers' Network will help you take steps to make sure your company is not one of them.
