Cybercrime expert to speak at seminar

A one day seminar on Financial crime and compliance is to be held at Fairmont Southampton hotel in October.

Larry Clinton, a leading US advisor on cybercrime and President of the trade association internet Security Alliance, is scheduled to address the seminar and more than 200 Government officials and top financial decision-makers are expected to attend, according to online service provider yCompliance which is organising the seminar.

“In 2008, the ISA published its Cyber Security ‘Social Contract,’ which is both the first and last source cited in the Executive Summary of President Obama’s ‘Cyberspace Policy Review’. This report also cited more than a dozen of ISA’s white papers — far more than any other source,” said yCompliance in a press release.

“Recently, these ISA documents were also the inspiration for many of the recommendations in the House Republican Cyber Security Task Force Report.”

It adds: “According to IPS News, Financial crimes have surpassed record levels with latest estimates putting global losses at 1 trillion dollars, despite unprecedented efforts by governments and corporate entities to rein in corruption, tax evasion, and transnational cybercrime. While the traditional spotlight on offshore financial centres still remains, the rapid proliferation of transnational and cyber white-collar crime has recently become the largest, and most devastating threat to companies operating in the modern economy.”

Local professionals slated to address the seminar include Tom Galloway, deputy director of the Bermuda Monetary Authority, Charles Thresh, Managing Director, KPMG and Jarion Richardson, Senior Compliance Manager at Appleby.

Confirmed speakers and panellists also include: Cynthia Cooper — Time Magazine’s 2002 Person of the Year and one of the WorldCom fraud whistle-blowers, Craig Swan — Managing Director of Supervision, Bermuda Monetary Authority. Ross Delston, CAMS — Attorney and Expert Witness on Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering issues, and consultant to the IMF, Raphael Simons, CFE — Manager Security and Fraud Risk, HSBC and Dr Kelly Richmond Pope, PhD, CPA — Associate Professor, DePaul University.
