The old adage that crime never sleeps is true even during a pandemic. The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime has stated in a policy brief in March 2020 that whilst the effects of the pandemic has caused a decrease in some organised criminal activities, it has also provided new opportunities in other areas, such as cybercrime, counterfeiting, money-laundering and fraud.
During this session, we look forward to hearing from the National Crime Agency on how the agency has been tackling economic crime during the global lockdown as well as new trends or areas of concerns that businesses should be aware of. We will also hear from professionals in companies who will describe their experiences and relay lessons learnt at the sharp end.
