The 9th International Conference on Financial Crime and Terrorism Financing (IFCTF) opened its doors on 4th October 2017.
The event was launched by Bank Negara Malaysia Governor Tan Sri Muhammad bin Ibrahim, with the theme “Future Proofing Compliance: Responsibility and Response-Ability”. Tan Sri Muhammad emphasised on the need to broaden the way we understand, think and approach compliance. “To this end, a deeper consideration of incentives, ethics, professional conduct and partnership is important to ensure compliance is future proof,” he said.
IFCTF 2017 explores emerging trends in financial crime, as well as next generation detection and technological capabilities required to meet global and regulatory expectations. The two-day conference sees international experts and industry specialists share their insights on current and future criminal threats and specify necessary plans and strategies to respond quickly and effectively to these threats.
Other speakers at the conference include senior representatives from both domestic and international agencies as well as private sector experts, including speakers from BNM, CyberSecurity Malaysia, U.S. Department of Justice, as well as a range of major financial organisations and industry suppliers. They will be covering topics such as cybersecurity, the dark web, cryptocurrencies and terrorism financing.
IFCTF is jointly organised by the Asian Institute of Finance (AIF) and the Compliance Officers’ Networking Group (CONG) and fully supported by Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) and the Securities Commission Malaysia.
