The PIMFA Financial Crime 2022 gives attendees access to industry leading debates from professionals across the regulatory, law enforcement, innovators and providers in the Financial Crime space.

As the financial crime landscape evolves with new techniques and technologies, the growing threat to firms and their clients is undeniable.

In response, regulators are pushing back by implementing stricter controls. Firms need to know how to protect themselves and their clients and what can be done to operate in a safer and more resilient environment.

Season 2 of the podcast will be out in late 2022.
