This event will provide a forum to discuss the growing role of public/private information-sharing mechanisms to tackle financial crime around the world as well as the barriers, opportunities and progress across Europe in developing such mechanisms. It will also provide a forum for exploring the balance with privacy and proportionality around these new capabilities.
Across the world, new task forces and forums are taking root that bring financial institutions and public authorities into a much closer level of dialogue around money laundering and terrorist financing risks. The emerging evidence indicates that these forums are significantly improving the ability for law enforcement agencies to investigate financial crimes.
