Full Overview

Money laundering, bribery, corruption, terrorist financing, sanctions busting, rogue trading, market abuse, payments fraud, cyber attacks – the list of crimes committed against banks, and within banks, is a long one. Despite ever-tighter controls introduced by the banking sector, and increased efforts by regulators and law enforcement, illegal activity continues to flourish in the financial system. A more co-ordinated, industry-wide response is therefore needed if the problem is to be dealt with effectively.

 

Key issues to be addressed include identifying which crimes pose the biggest threats, understanding the ever-changing attack vectors deployed by criminals, including cyber attackers, and implementing effective counter measures against all forms of crime. Boards and executive management need to appreciate the seriousness of the threats and allocate budget accordingly. Is more regulation needed to persuade banks to improve their anti-crime controls? How effective is regulation – has the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) helped reduce data theft?

 

The Combatting Financial Crime track at the FT Banking Summitwill cover all these issues, and more. Moderated by senior FT journalists, this event willbring together anti-financial crime experts from banks, regulators, crime agencies, police forces and other organisations to discuss the problems and work out the solutions.

Agenda - 4th Dec

  • 2:30pm
    Chair’s Opening Remarks

    Caroline Binham, Financial Regulation Correspondent, Financial Times

  • 2:35pm
    Keynote address: At the crime scene

    An overview of the latest crime trends afflicting businesses, especially in the financial sector. Who are the perpetrators and how can they be stopped?

  • 3:05pm
    Panel session: Developing a co-ordinated, industry-wide response

    Financial crime can never be eradicated, but it can be contained. Banks, regulators, police forces, prosecutors and other organisations already work closely to combat the problem, but more needs to be done. Key questions to be addressed include:

    • What are banks doing to combat crime?

    • How are they exchanging information on crime risks with their domestic and international peers?

    • How are emerging technologies like artificial intelligence being used to fight crime?

    • How are banks assisted by industry alliances, software vendors, consultants, law enforcement and intelligence agencies, financial regulators and political leaders?

    • What role do supra-national institutions like the Financial Action Task Force, Europol, Interpol  and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime have to play.

    This session will feature audience polling to gauge views.

    MODERATOR: Stephen Morris, European Banking Correspondent, Financial Times

  • 3:45pm
    Fireside chat: Dirty money – closing down Europe’s financial laundromats

    Europe’s banking system remains embroiled in money laundering scandals, despite the best efforts of bankers, regulators and law enforcers. Major banks have been found complicit, large fines have been levied and top executives have been fired. The UK’s National Crime Agency last year received a record number of suspicious activity reports (SARs) flagging up money laundering and other dodgy activity. Yet the problem persists. So what further action is necessary to put Europe’s “money laundromats” out of business?

    Tracey McDermott, Group Head, Corporate Affairs, Brand & Marketing, Conduct, Financial Crime and Compliance, Standard Chartered

    Andrew Pimlott, Senior Managing Director, Forensic and Litigation Consulting, FTI Consulting

    MODERATOR: Caroline Binham, Financial Regulation Correspondent, Financial Times

  • 4:00pm
    Networking Break
  • 4:20pm
    In conversation with the FT

    In this discussion on the crime threats faced by the banking sector, the head of financial crime at a leading European bank explains how they are being addressed. The solution lies in creating effective crime-fighting strategies and allocating realistic budgets to fund those strategies.

    Brian Dilley, Group Director, Fraud and Financial Crime Prevention, Lloyds Banking Group 

    INTERVIEWER: Caroline Binham, Financial Regulation Correspondent, Financial Times

  • 4:40pm
    Panel discussion: Managing cyber risk

    Banks are one of the main targets of cyber aggressors, but also among the best defended. As well as developing their own defences, they are working with each other, with intelligence and law enforcement agencies and with software experts to develop joint defensive measures for the banking sector. Co-ordinating organisations include the global Financial Services Intelligence Sharing and Analysis Centres (FS-ISACs), the UK’s Cyber Defence Alliance and Europol’s European Cyber Crime Centre (EC3).
    • What are the threats facing banks in cyberspace, and who are the attackers?
    • Are the cyber risks to banks’ supply chains adequately understood?
    • What are proving to be the best methods of prevention, detection and response?
    • Do board risk committees and executive management appreciate the seriousness of the threats?
    • How are banks co-ordinating their efforts?

    This session will feature audience polling to gauge their views.
