Virtual Conference 14 and 15 July 2022

You are invited to attend South Africa’s fastest-growing Commercial Crimes Congress

More than two years into the global Covid pandemic commercial crimes are, like never before, now truly at the top of the agenda for every organisation.

Organisations such as the World Economic Forum and the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) have pointed to the extraordinary increase in commercial crimes, cyber-attacks and money laundering – all under the cover of the pandemic.

And while the global crisis has accelerated technology adoption it has exposed cyber vulnerabilities, many associated with working from home protocols and astonishingly in many cases corporate unpreparedness. The pandemic has also served to further exacerbate tech inequalities within societies and between societies.

The ICFP conference is a collegial platform where experts can build a network and grow a community that together can address commercial crimes. That is why it is increasingly important that banks, financial institutions, utilities, tech companies and corporations.

The conference registrations are closed, as we have reached our full capacity.
