Fraud, theft and other bad acts are increasingly being perpetrated in cyberspace and, more often than not, financial institutions are being targeted. How businesses protect against fraud and cyber-crimes can make a difference.

Herrick hosted a panel discussion on the significant obligations of companies in preventing and detecting financial fraud and cyber-crimes. The discussion offered best practices for building your corporate defenses against financial crimes, including those perpetrated in cyber space, with a focus on:

  • How effective controls can manage fraud and other complex financial crimes
  • Why it is vital to analyze financial patterns to detect financial crimes
  • What detective methods are used that lead to investigations
  • Case studies investigated by law enforcement within the financial crimes unit
  • How private companies should work with the FBI
  • Cyber Security policies: from “best in class” to “adequate” to “reckless”
  • Preparing the “playbook” to respond to cyber events
