While financial crime has existed since currency was first exchanged for goods and services, technology advancement has radically changed the landscape, ease of access and scale of opportunity for cybercriminals. Almost all organisations are doing business in the digital world, making them easy targets for cybercrime.
Criminals are adopting ever-more sophisticated tools to gain access to personal and financial data. Compounding the threat, financial crimes can emanate from within, perpetrated by corporate insiders who have an intimate knowledge of the data and an organisation’s controls, enabling them to more effectively cover their tracks.
The exponential increase in the occurrence of financial crimes has led to increased regulatory oversight and government legislation, placing the onus on businesses to protect themselves from both external and internal threats and ensure that they’re compliant with regulatory laws. If businesses fail to take the necessary steps to combat financial crime, they could face substantial fines and operating sanctions. Consequently, an effective financial crime risk management framework has never been more important.
