Criminal organisations are increasingly present in the upper world, undermining governance in both the public sector and the private sector. Systemic fraud and infiltration pose a real threat to the systems designed to protect us against corruption, money laundering, cybercrime, trafficking and occupational fraud and abuse. Some sectors of society are more exposed than others, and thus have an urgent need to further strengthen their fraud risk governance. The public sector is evidently one of these vulnerable sectors. Are they sufficiently focusing on the serious crimes that destabilise public functions, rather than on petty crime? Furthermore, privatisation of public functions implies a huge responsibility for protecting these functions. In the private sector, several industries are becoming increasingly aware that financial economic crime can pose a serious risk to the objectives of a company. But are all of the players sufficiently aware of this? Are they adequately funded and empowered to respond to this risk, and are they responding in a coordinated manner?

The FCCP have become mainstream in the meantime and their relevance has been made even more important with the current Russia/Belarus sanctions regimes that directly target, amongst other things, the securities sector and for the first time, central securities depositories (“CSDs”).

Targeting professional financial crime enablers is key to curb cyber fraud

Over the last decades, the world has witnessed increasingly massive cyber crimes attacks being perpetrated across borders.
These crimes are often facilitated by lawyers, accountants, financial institutions and other professionals who help engineer the legal and financial structures seen in the financial crimes.
These professionals that create opportunities to facilitate the commission and / or concealment of such crimes undermine not only the rule of law, but their own profession, public confidence in the legal and financial system. Therefore, targeting professional enablers and disrupting their activities is a key avenue for addressing criminal activity at the source.

A good risk analyze with understanding of the offshore companioes is necessary.

The recent publications of the Pandora Papers are again a wake up call that we must pay more attention to the offshore world. This aspect should give a place in a standard KYC approach. Only then we can effectively combat financial economic crime.
